Ok, I have no idea how to post all the past threads, or if we're even doing that now.  If everyone will now post over here, I'll ask Ann to lock the other one.

Way to go, mum!  I like the title of the thread also.  Oh, I don't know exactly how to post the other threads either, but I don't think we really need to. 

Cristy, happy birthday sweetie.  I hope it's a really special one.

I took about an hour nap.  It's 79 outside right now, but I don't have the air on.  I usually don't put that on unless it gets into the middle-upper 80's.  So anyway, the warm air made me tired.  I went to my doctor's, picked up the script and took it to CVS to get filled.  When the cashier rang it up, she looked at my receipt and told me I had $5 CVS "extra-care bucks."  That's where you "earn" $5 by spending so much in one seasonal quarter and you can spend the $5 on anything (except alcohol, tobacco and prescriptions) at CVS.  This week, they have Doritos buy 1 get 1 free, so that's what I got.  I now have something to munch on while watching Jeopardy.  My mum used to play that with me over the phone every night that I wasn't in school.  I wish she were still around to play it. :'(  Nothing fills the place of my mum. 

Queen, I'm anxiously awaiting to hear how court went today.  I hope everything turned out o.k.  Did you hear anything about the house yet?  I've got my legs crossed right now.

OK ladies, I hope you all have a good evening.  If I'm not back later, I'll talk to you all tomorrow.

Evening Everyone---

Sorry for my late reply but today has been a very busy day and I am dead on my feet. My day started at 7am when I got up and considering that I am not a morning person, I was grouchy. I went to court with the roomie. They granted the PFA for three years and there is also a stipulation in it that he can't harass me either. The asshole really thought he was going to get out today. We have to go back to court next Wednesday for the asshole violating the PFA then we will be allowed to play the messages he left at my roomie's job and the emails he was sending. So, I doubt he will get out then either but the most time he can get is 6 months. Come to find out, he had been harassing our ASO too so he may not even be able to get assistance through them now. He cussed out my case manager, the receptionist who works there and his own case manager.

Mum--I almost screamed when I saw the title of your thread. It reminds me of that dreadful Barney song and I can't stand Barney. I'd rather do the Teletubbies and I am not fond of them.

As for the house, we went to the office today to inquire some more but the lady we needed to speak to wasn't there. She did call my reference and my one roomie's reference then she called me and said that she still has more applications to go through that she would get back to us as soon as possible. So, it's not a no and I am still trying to keep my hopes up.

I would write more but I am just exhausted.....Happy Birthday, Christy!!!!

Good grief we have totally slacked with posting the thread history LOL I had to go back to April to find a list. I changed the roman numerals to regular numbers because to be frank the numbers are getting so big it takes mental effort for me to figure out what XXVII and other numerals are in numbers. LOL its just easier to do regular numbers.

And we are now on 38 even though it says 28 LOL really I think we should ditch the roman numerals.
                 
                   Cristy



Queen - It must feel great to take care of that bucket of stupid head roomies ex bf. I hope he learns his lesson not to mess with you both.

Mum - I like the the subject line. It made me think about Barney also but for me it was a good thing because Barney always makes me think about my boys when they where little. I watched Barney so many times I could puke but my big boy Aaron s an adult now so I'm kinda over it and any time I get to think about my sweet baby boy Justin while he wasn't sick is a good thing. 

Betty - You mentioned Jeopardy. Have you noticed all the game shows on TV here lately in the evening now that the season has changed? I've caught myself watching Family Feud a few times.

Hello Everyone! Nothing much to report here...I guess no news is good news right?

Someone earlier asked me about Kindergarten and I don't remember who...but I  will try to answer it. Please keep in mind this is my first experience with this grade. I teach 5th grade so needless to say there is a big difference! As far as being held back in Kinder...it can happen but it is up to the parent. The teacher can recommend it but can't force it. Kindergarten is not required by the state. This summer school is just "enrichment" which is ridiculous. A couple of the kids are really bright and the rest are pretty low. They are 6 and already they don't want to do their work or pay attention. The irony is that this is the reason they are here. How many times can I go over the short a vowel sound....??? LOL! One kid I swear belongs in special ed...He also has a speech problem and I cannot understand a word he says.  :( Ok...enough about that! Oh, I do want to add something...I truly love what I do and love being with the kids. Most of this is just venting...please don't think I hate the kids. Personality is hard convey through posts, you know?  :) :)

On a different note...
My entire family has been out of town and it has been weird. My mom is in Texas, my dad is in Florida, and my sister is on her senior trip to Cancun. I have been keeping an eye on my dad's house since he has been gone. I talked to my sister today and she is SO ready to come home tomorrow. She is totally enjoying the clubbing but is ready to leave. Her friend's mother was supposed to pick them all up but she wants me to come get her. LOL! I guess she needs a break from her BFFs. I am going to be staying with her at my dad's house until he gets back next week. When she found out about she wasn't too thrilled, but today she wanted to make sure I would be staying with her. She makes me laugh. She is 18 but thinks she is 25 until she is missing us....You know the age, "I don't need anyone. I'm independent!" Yeah right...LOL

Anyways...that's all for now. Talk to you all soon! :) :)

Winn, math was never my strongs suit..lol..and I checked and double checked to make sure I got the number right and i still got it wrong!  oh, well, as they say, "it's only a number" :P

Vyv, I don't take any of your posts as saying you don't love the kids.  It's kind of like loving the cake and hating the calories.  There's so much "stuff" involved in teaching that is totally overwhelming and has nothing to do with the kids except that they are the ones sitting there.  I truly understand, believe me.

Queen, just another hurry up and wait with the house.  But, you're right, you haven't been told "no".  Or, as my oldest says, "I don't hear no fat lady singing!"  Just hang in there and try to get some sleep.

*YAWN*  I can't believe it's after midnight and I'm still awake.  I even took 2 Benedryl for my allergies which usually knocks me out in under an hour.  We're watching Macgyver on DVD - I just love that man ;D.  I managed to get my laundry washed, hung out, and folded without the rain.  It's about time.  I finished the craft room and the downstairs.  Now "all" I have left is to re-organize the office / school room.  I think I'll wait on those..lol..the mess isn't going anywhere.

Ok, ladies, I'm falling asleep, the words are blurring, and I'm not sure what I'm typing anymore.  I think I fell asleep somewhere in this post, so if it doesn't make sense, sorry.  Just figure it out the best you can.

Sweet dreams, my darlins!

Everyone One Hello,

Its another beautiful sunny day here Im at work till  4:30pm ..Adam my son sends you all a wram hug :). this week he started crawling..its so amazing seeing each day how fast he is growing.

Bettytacy-   hope your keeping your head up girl!

Mum-   How did you sense that.. I just think Queen Latifahs  great to tell you the truth and she is among the actresses I adore,hahahah I do look like her in many ways..

Queen- guess your keeping it real...I once had a nutcase bothering me online I just blocked him instantly...most weirdos like that are dispeakable...whenever we run into them gilrs we just report them as spasm. I registered myself at POZ and a guy sent me a mail..and welcomed me for a chat at yahoo msn : when we started a conversation he just wrote he can sense Im a fake and all nasty things before I got a chace even to write a word..I was like ..heh I havent said a word and your the one who clicked me you have no right to judge me ok. It really pissed me off..havent opened Poz since it really got to me. .I am very sensitivet its  a pity people use these sites to let out there anger on someone they hardly know...and others go to the extreme for sexchats ..which I dont tolerate.

Wini- Billy has my prayers he has to know we all are not here forever its like a phase were passing through may he have the strength to accept the situation ..My both parents passed away when I was very young ..whenever I think of the good things my parents did to me and the moments I had with them I know deep down there in a speacial place.

Cjc--May you have many healthy and happy years to come-Happy Birthday!

Jshort- Hope your having a nice day ..its great knowing you sons well I wish I could test my Son even now but the Doc says with him still having my antibodies it may test positive and frustrate me more its better we wait till one one year when he will be having his owns so that we be sure..guess I will have to hang in there ..what freaks me out is he didnt take the meds for six weeks just one single 200mg nevirapine drop..the Doc reasures me the meds I was taking helped reduce the risks. Im praying and hoping for the best.

Ladies its getting pretty hectic here at work catch you all later........

Morning ladies,

Queen, I'm glad the asshole didn't get off.  Hopefully he'll get more next week.  I'm still hoping for the house for you.

Wendy, I've always watched Jeopardy at night.  I think it must be on at different times in different states.  I did catch an episode of Family Feud the other day, but it was on during the day.  We must be on different airwaves. :)

Viv, when I was your sister's age, I felt the same way she does.  Doesn't everyone that age?

Cristy, fess up, gf.  How old are you?

Mum, usually you've posted by now.  You must have been tired last night.

Mahalia, welcome to our family.  We're really a good lot.  I've been diagnosed HIV+ since 1989.  There were many rough times, but they know so much more than they used to; I'm sure you'll be around at least another 20 years.  Just jump right in here with us.

Latifah, well, you just give Adam a big hug for me!  He's crawling already, aye?  Aren't kids amazing.

I got up a little late for me today.  But that's alright.  I have nothing to do today, except deep condition my hair.  I think my hormones changed and that's the reason it's so dry.  When I started Depo it got really, really soft, but just in the last month it's gotten dry.  I haven't changed shampoos or conditioners, so it's not that. 

My bff's son is graduating (high school, sort of) next weekend.  He's at culinary school, but he's taken enough high school courses to be able to graduate.  This is a huge accomplishment for him.  He's got Tourette's, extremely bipolar, other things I can't remember.  I've known him since he was 5 or 6.  My bff has invested huge amounts of time into him, and it's starting to pay off.  I'm so proud of him.  So, I'm going to be going to his graduation.  My bff wants me to go to her house Friday night, spend the night and go with her and her mum Saturday.  I might do that.  I suppose Alex could take care of my cat. 

I really don't have anything else to report right now.  I'll be back later.

Good Morning Ladies,

Just dropping in to check on everyone. I haven't posted in a while been a little busy with work and school. I am so happy that we are having a 3 day weekend this week at the center. I got my labs back yesterday, I am so excited  ;D my CD4 is 515 from 278 and I am U/D from 62,200. I couldn't believe it.

My DD birthday is on 31st of this month.

Wish- u got a celly huh?? U must pm your number so we can keep in touch.

Queen- I'm happy the guy didn't get. How is everything going with you, hope things have gotten better

Welcome to Jshort, Mahalia, and Latifah. This is a great forum. The women on here have helped me come along way.

Well I have to go feed my children breakfast, I will check back in later.

Latifah, Reading your post made me jump out of my seat!!! Of course your stressed they haven't tested your son yet!!!!!  If you dont mind me asking where do you live? My son was tested from the time he was born. They used a different test, not an antibody test because of course he will have my antibodies. they test for the actual virus, not the antibodies. My son was also on AZT for 6 weeks after he was born. There are ways to find out your sons status now and I urge you to look into it more. I am more then willing to help in any way I can. If he's neg you have piece of mind, if he's poz you can begin a treatment plan to ensure the best life you can for him...


Ok now that i ranted and raved about Latifahs son (sorry for my moment of insanity) how are you ladies today?

Queen- Ive delt with crazy men before, had an order of protection against my ex. Its such a pain in the ass. I dont get why people cant just move on. I wish you guys the best,

Betty- enjoy your day. its nice to have nothing to do sometimes, relax and take advantage of it.

Mum- reading about the things that go on in your home remaind me so much of my home and my kids. Its often chaos, but a good chaos if that makes sense.

To all the other ladies I missed I hope you all have a wonderful day.

As for me, nothing much going on here. I woke up exausted again. So im dragging my ass today. Nothing much to do but housework and laundry. Maybe I can find some time to myself to relax a bit later on. Its supposed to be a beautiful day and I need some sun in the worst way. I look pale. Hopefully I can get out for a little while today. on that note its time to get the kids showered and dressed for the day. I'll be back later on.

The one I've seen a few times lately is Al Roker's 'Celebrity Family Feud'. He was the weather guy on the Today Show.

Morning Ladies---

What a difference some sleep makes. Nothing going on today, so I am going to take it easy.I was suppose to go visit my son but I was just too tired. I am going to get him a card today since I have to go to the post office to see about this money order getting tracked. I got the tires changed on the car yesterday, just something that had to be done in order to pass inspection which I hope to get done tomorrow. So, I may have some transportation at last.

Latifa-- You don't know me yet, I always keep it real. But that's just me since being poz, I really live by the statement that "life is too short" and I don't have time for games,drama or anything negative. Welcome to the forums.

Jshort- yeah, I don't get why people can't move on either. I understand how being hurt feels but damn. But the ex amazed me because he was literally a control freak. My roomie couldn't have anything w/o his permission.

Keeping--Congrats on the great numbers. You're on Atripla, right?

That's it for me, I'll check in later.

Morning ladies-

Mum- Nice job with the title! I can't stand Barney either but always since that song with my kids.  The ones that really drive me bonkers are Veggie Tales, they all have really good story ideas but the voices drive me nuts.  I'm jealous you got your craft room done, I still need to move everything out of the old office so I can get it painted for my daughter BUT I have no where to put the stuff that is in the office.  I guess I will be donating a lot of stuff in the near future.  Around here though even the second hand stores are getting expensive, they charge like 8 bucks for a pair of jeans, I think that is totally missing the point but I guess they have to make money too.  I hope you are feeling better.

Betty-  I didn't realize you had a cat. I think I can answer about 5% of the questions on jeopardy, LOL, needless to say I suck big time.  I hope you have a nice time if you decide to stay at your friends house.

Keeping- Great job on your numbers, I am so happy for you!!!

LOL.  I am LMAO off.  The poor Jehovah witness lady that always stops here just came by and she heard my dog barking and she was holding our outside door closed for dear life.  Thankfully that made her not want to come in.  

Queen- I hope you hear some good news about the house.  Didn't you say you had section 8?  A lot of times the landlords look at that as guaranteed money so that might give you a step up.

Christy- Happy Birthday, I hope you are planning to do something for yourself.

Win- How are you feeling?  I totally agree with using just numbers, Roman numerals are like a foreign language to me.  I think it was on your last thread, you posted a pic of coleous, elepant ears, something? I forgot to comment on them, they looked really cool, I love your backyard.  Are those the ones that get really tall?

Moon- I hope you and Cheech are doing well and your job search is paying off.

Latifah- Just wait your son will be crawling before you know it, that is such a fun age when they figure out how to do things and look like little weeble wobbles on thier legs.

I kept the kids home from preschool today and I don't have much except for the endless cleaning.

 When my youngest cut his finger and I had to take him to the ER, he and I were practicing saying "Octopus" while we were there.  He must have seen one at school and kept saying something like o-pu-pu-pus. So he now randomly busts out(he just did it now and will do it about 5 more times today) with OCT-TA-PUS with a huge grin on his face. What a nut. Yesterday, on the way home from school I was blessed with a chorus of " Goodbye, farewell to you my friend" all the way home. It is so cute when they all sing together.  It is such a bummer when they start pronouncing everything the way it should be. Friend was coming out "fwend"


I hope everyone has a great day!!

Oh crap. Jeez my mind is going too fast this morning. I ment to say hello to mahalia  and welcome to the ladies area.



Snow I have no clue how big they will get LOL I just know that the container is too small to hold all the roots going on in there when I was trying to plant the caladiums. I'll get a bigger one eventually. I'd have done it already if I wasnt so cheap.

I'm feeling ok right now. I've chilled out in the time it took me to make the picture up there. LOL I must be hormonal or something my mind was racing this morning and filling out a time sheet I got pissed thinking about an event on the timesheet.
I cant remember if I told you gals about that or not. Anywho I've had a loud argument with a staff lady at Harold's older brother's nursing home twice this month. I seem to recall telling someone on here that I dont respond very well to anyone talking quick or with a tone to me.  ;D
I'm ok now. Healthwise I'm doing good. I still get the low grade fevers and that is old. hate that. <shugs> nothing I can do about it aside from taking medication to bring the fever down. But otherwise just plain ole regular Wendy stuff.

I'll make it or I'll drag anyone else around me kicking and screaming LMAO

OMG, to think I missed all of Thread 37!  So sorry, GFs!  A lot has been happening.

I had a GI scare the week of 6/9 but am fine now.  GI doc said no need for scoping up or down and I told my primary that yest so he would finally stop pushing the issue.

My counts are up (see signature below)

Iceman and I are really doing well.  Today is 8 months 8 MONTHS!! 

I am off work until Monday.

Cheech got shaved down yest and looks like a 50 lb chiuhuahua (pics to follow soon)

Work is changing.  Us 4 girls in Accounting will be doing every role (AP, AR and financial stmts) so one is shaking in her shoes cause she is afraid she won't know what to do (Karma IS a bitch, ha!)

I have no money for food bec it goes to gas for commuting.  Iceman has been feeding me.

I got my new roof put on my house yest but I have been hanging at Iceman's.

My nieces are up from Georgia so I am hanging out with the two of them and my parents for the 4th.

Still looking for a job close to home, but the benefits are really good at my current job.

Did I mention that Iceman and I are doing really well, lol?  Some significant things have happened that would normally strain a relationship, but we are handling everything maturely and it is making us even closer. 

Ice and I are simply CRAZY about each other with no end in sight!

Happy Birthday, Cristy!  :)

Ok, I'll try to get to everyone - a lot has happened this morning.  Hubby and I started working on our walkway.  We got huge asymmetrical 21 in by 16in stones to use as the stepping stones and sand rocks (think white to shades of light tan) to fill in around them.  We only got 5 bags of the sand stones, so we'll need to get about 6 or 7 more.  We had to dig and haul up dirt, spread it out with a hoe, and level it all off.  Then, we nailed down black covering to keep the weeds and grass down.  Then, put on the big stones then filled in what we could with the river stones.  We've also got to think about what kind of boarder we're going to use.  We thought we'd use the river rocks from the stream, but it just looked too undone.  I took some pictures, but don't want to post them until I can show you the finished product.

The kids were out all day today smearing each other in mud.  YEE-HA!  They were too dirty to come in to bathe, so we hooked up the hose ;D  The water was freezing, but I know have 6 clean babies.  We took pictures of them and I'll post them as soon as Hubby puts them in the computer.  They had a blast, but they looked like a lost tribe.

Latifa: we almost named our youngest son Adam, but we already had a daughter named Eden (did I just say that?), so that wouldn't have worked.

Betty: yeah, I was so tired last night and then the kids were up super early.  I'm usually awake by 6:30, but the kids were up earlier than that so I had to hit the ground running.  Today is the ideal weather day - high is 78 and bright sun with a gentle breeze.  It was nice to be outside working.  Tomorrow promises to be a steamer with highs of 87 and rain in the afternoon - YUK!!  We'll be holed up inside glugging buckets of water to stay cool.  oh, and happy 3rd! ;)

Cindy: i was thinking about you last night.  I'm glad to hear everything is going so well with you.  Ain't love grand?

Well, ladies, another episode of Macgyver is on so I'd better go.  We're going to my parents' house on Friday and Saturday for celebrations with each side of the family.  I'm debating baking tonight because tomorrow will be too hot.  If not, then I'll be up before dawn or staying up very late tomorrow to get it done.  Love to all of you!

Mum- You had me all excited for like 2 minutes cuz I thought today was the 3rd  :-\ I can't wait to see the pics of the kids and the rock-way.

Win- I think you and me are alot alike. I get real pissy if someone tries to take a tone with me.  I am glad you are feeling better.  How is Billy doing?

Drag- Sorry to hear that you are exhausted and your wrists are still bothering you.  Yup, my stepson is in a wheelchair.  Basically, he has no muscle what so ever so he can't stand, walk, lift or carry much.  He pulls his wheelchair around with his feet so he can fly around here no problem.

Moon- Nice to hear from you!  Glad things are going so well with you and Iceman! Sorry to hear about your GI scare but happy you are doing better.

Wish- I don't know what I would do without the kids, you must be in your glory, good thing you can talk to them everyday.  How is there father acting?  Sorry things did not work out with you and the youngin.  I have started walking nightly with a friend of mine and mostly the whole walk we bitch about our men, we have pretty much decided they suck!

I got one of the closets cleaned out so far and a couple of boxes in the back of my car for the Salvation Army.  I am going to get this house organized if it kills me.

Oh, gravy, Snow, I thought today was the 3rd..lol..not sure where my head is.  I think the Albuterol and inhaler are destroying my brain cells ;D.

I know how you feel about the organizing.  I started this Spring because it's been on my summer "to do" list for the last couple of years and I never get it finished.  I was determined to have it all done before fall.  I think we ended up throwing away 30 garbage bags full, and taking untold amounts of stuff to both Goodwill and to people we could pass things along to (which is what I prefer to do).  We only have the office / school room left and then I'll be done.  It's the worst room for me, though.  Hubby tends to just put his files where ever regardless of how many "things" I get him or clear out for him to use. 

For our family night viewing pleasure: "Cody Banks II".  For our snacking pleasure: movie mix. (popcorn, gummies, pretzels, "bug" cookies, peanuts, and sugar-free chocolate chips.)  For my snacking pleasure after the kids go to bed: a Girl Scout Cookie Blizzard made with Thin Mint cookies ;D

Love and moochies my honies!

Evening ladies,

Wow, what a lot of activity since this morning.

Keeping, congratulations on your numbers!  That's fantastic.

J, sorry you're waking up tired.  What are your numbers like?

Wendy, I think I've seen Celebrity Family Feud advertised, but I've never watched it.  I know who Vincent Pastore is.  I used to be a Sopranos addict.
How is Billy holding up?

Queen, good luck on getting the car all legal and back on the road.

Snow, I gotta be honest. My daughter's 24 and I don't remember when she used to talk "little kid" talk.  But I like to hear other people's kids.   Oh, and I can't answer very many questions on Jeopardy either; I like to play it because I'm getting old and it's supposed to keep the mind sharp. ;) 

Cin, nice to hear from you, girlie!  I'm glad your GI problems seem to be resolving.  I'm looking forward to seeing Cheech in his new do.

Mum, it seems like you're getting our weather the day after it happens here.  It's pretty dark outside right now, blowing and thundering.  Yesterday was nice (in the 70's and sunny); today it got up to 88.  So, you thought today was the 3rd, aye?  Now, you can't blame that on the inhaler, because I remember you doing this before. :D  That's alright, dear, I understand.  With all those kids, I'm surprised you keep anything straight.

Well, in the last five minutes it got pitch dark outside.  And it's only 10 after 8 here.  It's thundering and really blowing and I'm sure the rain will be starting soon.  I'm going to have to go outside soon and smoke to watch everything. 

I did nothing today.  Tomorrow I'm going to pay bills, do laundry and go grocery shopping.  This storm is supposed to cool things down back into the 70's.  And it's supposed to be nice Friday.  I'm going to get some brats and corn and have Alex grill them.  The less work I have to do.....  Have a good night ladies.

Evening Ladies---

Not much to report at all. Tried to transfer the title today but my gf brought the cremation certificate instead of the death certificate for her father's car so I have to do it in the morning. Lucifer is also going to the vet to get fixed. He is still trying to jump Nefertiti and I am not for anymore kittens and since I have a little change, I might as well get it done, he fathered a litter.

Cindy, good to see you post, was wondering what was going on with you. Great to hear that you and Ice are still knocking boots and getting closer... ;D Hmm, not sure what to say about the job, sorry? I remember when you were so gung ho about it but understands the strain it is causing. I hope you find something better. Can't wait to see the pics of Cheech.

Not sure if I am going to be feeling Family Feud. I really haven't since it was hosted by Richard Dawson and I don't even look at The Price is Right since Bob Barker died. So not into game shows anymore though I use to love The Weakest Link with both hosts. I loved the way the hosts would gun on the contestants.

I know it is windy here now too. I need to go roll the windows up on the car. I have been trying to air it out the last few days since it has a bit of a mildewy smell from sitting. I am wondering what I can use to get the smell out of there. I have used Febreeze and Out but it only seems to get rid of some of the smell. It got hot here today and I dove under the ac and it's suppose to be in the 90's I think for the 4th.

That is it for me, I am off to play Warcraft.

Good morning ladies!!

Well, I didnt wake up as tired as I usually do this morning which is good. Im still a bit fatigued but nothing like I have been lately. I was going to go back to bed, but its peaceful here this morning. The baby woke up, drank a bottle and drifted off to sleep again. The rest of the kids are sleeping so I figured I'd have a cup of coffee and enjoy the peace before the chaos begins.

Betty- I dont know what my numbers are. Still working on getting into the ID doctor. Transportation is an issue because my car is not working so I need to find a way to get there. Taxi isnt an option since the place is 50 miles away and a trip of that nature by taxi is more then i can afford.


Queen- I feel you on the game show thing. Some of the old ones just aren't the same with the orginal hosts gone and I haven't found a new one that I really like enough to watch on a reg basis. I hope all goes well for you with everything you have going on these days.

Mum- I know all about lil dirt monsters. Everyday my son comes in covered in dirt. I swear I think the kid rolls in it!!! He usually has tons of dirt in his shoes, and a dirty handprint on his face. My shower needs to be sprayed and cleaned everytime he gets out of it. He leaves a mud trail behind in the tub. Cant wait to see your pix!

Snow- good luck with the organization

Drag- sorry to hear your not feeling well. :-[

Well, besides my normal cleaning Im not sure what I'll do today. It seems like its going to be another beautiful. I need to get out. Im a bit down lately, money has been really tight for us these days. I feel as if Im being swallowed by bills and gas prices. I went to the store to get baby formula, I was pretty stoked because I had a coupon for $5 off. Well, for some reason the store wouldnt take the damn coupon so the extra $5 I thought I'd have is no longer, lol. Being broke is very stressful!!!!! I just pray something will happen soon and things will get better. I really need a new job aswell. But it seems Jobs are getting harder and harder to find these days too.

Well ladies, I'm off to watch some TV before the children take over. I'll be back later on.

Morning ladies,

Queen, I don't blame you for wanting to get Lucifer fixed. 

Jshort, have you been in touch with your local Aids Service Organization about the transportation issues with you seeing a doctor?  It's really important that you be followed regularly. 

A couple nights ago I was watching Nancy Grace.  On there it had the story about a 12 year old Vermont girl who had disappeared; it also had on there about her uncle and stepfather being arrested for child pornography and I think one of them was for obstruction of justice.  Well, anyway, she was last seen with the uncle, who was running like a child sex slave thing.  Yesterday they found her body.  That kind of stuff makes me so angry.  In those cases, I wouldn't mind someone getting the death penalty.  They're not saying if the uncle was involved in the murder or not, but they found her body close to his house. 

Today I'm paying bills, doing laundry and going shopping.  Other than that, nothing else going on.  I hope you ladies have a good day.  I'll probably be back later.

Betty, I have contacted my ASO. I signed up for case management but Im very frustrated with them. I met with a case manager when I intially signed up, then she gave my case to someone else. I arranged to meet with them then got a letter stating that they are no longer working at the ASO and my case will be given to someone else. Well this new guy called me and I havent gotten back to them yet. I hope he can help because the first lady seemed to know nothing. Im new to all this, I dont know what services Im entitled to and when I met this lady I felt like "the blind leading the blind" I hope this new guy is better

HEY BETTY - HAPPY 3RD!!! ;D

J: aren't kids fun?  I miss the "baby" years, but it is getting easier the older they get.  At one point, we had 5 in diapers :o.  Now, we're down to 1.  Not sure if she'll ever be potty trained, but we're not pushing her.  She's got some issues and has no clue about going potty.  She's the 1 in my avitar. What is the age ranges of your kids?  Our's are 11, 8 1/2, almost 8, 6, 5, 4. Three boys and three girls.  I like to have more, but Hubby has threatened to buy us bunk beds. :P

Q: I'll send my Hubby up there.  Maybe we can get a group discount on fixations..lol.  Have you heard anything about the house yet?

Hubby is off to visit clients.  The state legislature has given $3.5million to the program so that they can get caught up on paying people.  That's all nice and good, but the fiscal year started on July 1st, and without increasing the budget and without getting someone in there who'll better manage the money, we're going to be in the same situation again.  We know some practitioners that they owe $17,000 in backpay.  Another, they owe $10,000.

On his way home, he's going to get the rest of the materials so we can finish our walkway.  It's turing out a wee bit more than expected, but it'll look really nice and won't have to be redone.  Today it's supposed to be hot, hot, hot, (mid-80s) so I'm keeping on the airconditioners.  But, tomorrow it's back down to 70.  Not too warm for swimming, but perfect for being outside and watching the kids swim (and freeze).

Everyone is up and about, so I better go save my kitchen from the thundering horde.  I'll check in later..and bring pictures!  Love to you all.

Latifah, Reading your post made me jump out of my seat!!! Of course your stressed they haven't tested your son yet!!!!!  If you dont mind me asking where do you live? My son was tested from the time he was born. They used a different test, not an antibody test because of course he will have my antibodies. they test for the actual virus, not the antibodies. My son was also on AZT for 6 weeks after he was born. There are ways to find out your sons status now and I urge you to look into it more. I am more then willing to help in any way I can. If he's neg you have piece of mind, if he's poz you can begin a treatment plan to ensure the best life you can for him...


Hello Ladies hope you all are doing great and doing what you love most.

Im having an internet acess problem here today its on and off guess bse the power was out during the morning till midday...thought I should drop a line before it goes off again.

Jshort- Im in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania East Africa...you can imagine here we get CD4 count only I dont know my viral load. Im going to look into it more so that I know once and for all ...and Im going to tell then I dont see the logic of waiting till his one year old.  I appreaciate your concern dear and will keep you posted on the outcome.

keepingfaith,Dragonette,vivy thanks for the welcome hahahah im liking it here very very much....Im looking forward to knowing you all.

Hi GFs~

Welcome to the new faces here since I was on in mid-June!  I was catching up on posts last night and poor Cheech rung his own bell!  Someone in Iceman's neighborhood set off fireworks at 930pm and Cheech bolted back for the house from the yard.  Only prob was that the sliding glass door was shut.  Damnit!  My poor guy is all shaved down and has no fur (extra cushioning, lol) and runs SMACK into the glass door.  He was so scared and shaken from it but he's OK this morning.  It scared the crap outta me, to say the least.  Most of you know how attached I am to my doggie.  He's 14-1/2 yrs old and a NUT. 

I am still at Iceman's, took all of this time off to help my mother out with my nieces and she hasn't even called.  Screw it.  I'll relax today and get together with family tomorrow and over the weekend.

I'm going to go eat some brownies that I baked and maybe play Guitar Hero.  Still checking for a new job closer to home but the market stinks.  No one wants to pay for good work, they'd rather pay less to a dumbass and then spend more money recruiting a few more later on.  Sigh.

Hey gfs...How is everyone this am??

Drag : Hey..yeah he WANTS them for the year...i have tentatively agreed. We will see. There are some things i could get done for myself, while he heads them..i am still thinking though.

I didnt actually break up with yungin...we had a really long talk the other night...till about 4 am sitting outside in his car...n he cried some and said that i hurt him by some of the things i say...( its my personality, never purposely) but never purposely never matters when u have hurt someones feelings...Apparently I had hurt him many times and he finally was able to express it to me without giving me attitude n walking away. He is hurt i sent my kids with their dad...he says now he has his son and i send mine away..he felt  like i sent them away cus of him...bcus of a comment i made about them needing a dad and him not being their dad...etc....I have never been one able to really rein in my tongue but i really do love him and want to work on making things suceed. I told him I am not a mind reader however and that it is imperative that he tells me how he feels cus honestly sometimes Im like a man and can be really selfish and unthoughtful, but i dont mean to be..im just so used to bullshit that i have conditioned myslef to guard my heart against any possible suspects.
So it seems we want the same things from each other but we express ourselves totally different. I get smart and start making sarcastic accusations..and he gets hurt n shuts down...and leaves or wants to hang up the fone...I told him a relationship takes alot of work and the only way im going to put work into another potentially doomed relationship ..i have to be 200% positive (lol) that it is real this time....
With all that being said we had the most amazing make up whoopie last night..(TMI?)..LOL never

Good to hear from u Cin! was wondering where u were...8 months huh..they go by so fast when its fun...its been a year now for me n yungin...

Snow the dad is acting like normal...stuck up snob..he thinks he is better than me...they have a really nice house n van, all kinds accessories according to my son...i dont care about that mess any more..He found him anothr Haitian woman..maybe thats what he needs..someone more like him...she is really nice tho..and no where near as fine as me..lol..the kids are behaving themselves rather well..i was surprised..she told me they were really good kids....but its only been a couple weeks...we will see about that....My son keeps asking me when am i coming and he keeps putting his baby sister (the new baby) on the fone for me to talk to ..i think its really cute..they love their lil sister...i thought i would be so pissy if he ever had another baby but i really dont care and my kids are loving it so im loving it too.

Whats everyone doin for the 4th?

Hi Wish~

I like the pics!  I am still trying to catch up on things around here with the Thread.  Sounds like you and yungin are moving in the right direction, though.  Rein in that tongue a little bit and you won't scare him off, sounds like he hung around and LISTENED to you.  That's good!  Its very tough to get a man to listen to you even when he's sitting right next to you, in one ear and out the other, I know........

Nice to hear that the kids are doing well with their father.  As for the nice house and van and material things that he has....they only last so long, GF.  You can have all of the cash in the world and pamper yourself to death, but you can still feel very lonely inside. 

I envy some people that seem to "have it all" and have no prob paying but the bills, but then I smile to myself and remember that they DON'T have it all.   ;)  At least not the things that count, anyway.

OK, so my mother called a little before noon and asked if I was going to the waterpark with her and my nieces.  She didn't call at all yest and was pissy Tuesday afternoon when I was helping out, so I DECLINED.  Boy did she get off of the phone in a hurry.  She should have called yesterday and asked what I was doing today, I am too tired to jump at the last minute, esp when I can't please her no matter what I do.  Today is for ME, I have decided.  Cheech and I are hanging at Iceman's and maybe tomorrow I will catch up with my parents and nieces.  They still don't know what their plans are and I just hate that shit.  LOL

Thanks Cin, i really do plan on watching what i say....he wouldnt be around if he didnt care and i have to stop being so paranoid and sarcastic....

As for baby daddy...i dont worry bout that material stuff..i am doing well for a single mom of 3 by myself. I have a house, a car and a "big plasma" tv (as my son was so happy about)..theirs is prolly bigger but im content on what i have accomplished..i dont wan t my kids all caught up in that tho..like not wanting to come home cus daddy's tv is bigger..thats petty...Besides ..he is a cheater and a liar...i am not missing out on anything...

Your mom sounds like mine regarding never being satisfied..i cant stand that being that i am so "insensitive" anyways..lol

Its only recently that I have stopped saying "Yes, yes, yes" to Mom at the drop of a hat cause it just exhausts me.

I still feel the guilt but I am learning to deal with it and do things for me.

Hell, with diabetes and HIV, I need my rest, lol!   ;D

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you believe that we are STILL not finished with the walk!  I told Hubby to get 50 of the border sections and does he listen to me?? OF COURSE NOT!  He got 40 because the math fiend can figure it out all by his lonesome.  Well, guess what - we need 6 more.  Ok, so I over-estimated, but it would be finished!!!  And, for the inside border, he got exactly - NOTHING!  He asked what I wanted, I told him, he found it, then decided that he wanted me to see it first.  OK, normally that would make sense, except, I TOLD him that's what I wanted and told him how many we'd need.  HELLO!!  If you are going to ask my opinion then go do whatever you want, then DON'T ask me.  Hell, i might need to use that breath you made me waste as my last dying breath to write you outta my Will!  Now, we have to waste time and money (Lowe's is 25 miles away) to go get the stuff and finish. 

Am I happy?  NO! >:(

Mum (who'll be flashing Hubby the mean mum face for the rest of the day and should make him take all the kids by himself to get the stuff so I can at least have a couple of free hours.  BUT, somebody has to make sure he gets it right)

Vent Alert
I tried on several dresses and a couple of slacks and blouses today. Trying to find something suitable for a funeral.
I just cant find nothing that looks good and feels good wearing it. If it feels good its butt ugly and if its uncomfortable its still not anywhere near what I'd want to wear.

Clothes shopping is depressing. I cant stand all these ugly prints and strange fabrics that seem to be trendy now adays.
Plus I don't want my ass crack hanging out and I'd prefer not to have my boobs hanging out either.
I also don't want any plastic beads or ornaments on my tops nor do I want shiny metallic crap and I don't think bedazzling my top is cute. And I don't want a shirt that shows my belly button or is see through. And I don't need a shirt that has words across the chest.

I'd likely still have a hard time finding clothes even if I was a size 6. I am a 12 and I swear everything out there in my size is ugly or inappropriately cut for my shape.

wish and moon, i so agree with you ladies!!!  Theres been times in my life when Ive had nothing and times when Ive had alot and you know the material things dont change how i feel as a person. the more money you have the more bills you aquire. I have a big plasma tv too and I could care less about it (the BF bought it). I have many great things and sometimes i still get sad and depressed sometimes im happy......life is what you make it. I wake up every morning to a great man, and a bunch of crazy kids....and i love it!!!!!

Mum- ugh, so sorry to hear of your frustration, just think it will all pay off soon.


until later GF's

Wish- Beautiful pics, that camera phone takes some pretty good shots.  Glad to hear you and your man had a heart to heart, I hope things go well.  Nothing like some good make up booty.  ;D

Mum- I so hear you on that one. OMG!  Maybe that is just a guy thing, my SO does that all the time with me but his excuse is usually he wants me to see it and/or he gets tired of being in the store and wants to get in and out.  If it was up to him, nothing would ever get done.

Win- Do you have a JC Penney down there? or Kohls?  They have had some nice one color shirts that are relatively long.  I like some designs but the bedazzled is just gross to me. 

I did nothing today but go grocery shopping and take the 2 older kids for a walk, which was stupid because it was hot as hell.  My son rode his bike and I pushed the others ones wheelchair, I was sweating bullets by the time I got home.
My friend that I have been going walking with has a girls drink night every now and then and I went for the first time last night. I didn't drink much but we were all laughing our asses off talking about fights we have gotten into. 

I hope everyone has a good night and a nice 4th of July.  My parents are coming down here and we are going to have a cookout, I am not sure if we are going to venture out to fireworks because one of the 3some was scared to death last year.

Today was Kohls LOL last time was JC Penny. I really like both stores but I never find anything I want to buy for me.
Billy says I am too picky.  ;D

I went looking online and spent the time on www.myshape.com and entered all my measurements just to see what they suggest would look good on my body type. The measuring part was a pain in the ass and annoying because I am bigger than I want to be and measuring your body just reminds you of that. LOL
Anywho it turns out I am a body type M.

They described me as:

Women with softened, straight figures.
M-shaped women often have straight shoulder lines and rounded bottoms, and the difference between their waist and hip measurements averages 6-9 inches.
 Proportinate Shoulders, Bust & Hips
 Often a Straight Shoulder Line
 Defined Waist
 Curvy or Rounded Bottom

If my tummy was as flat as the lady on that page I'd be one happy camper.

I love the clearance sections at Kohls I always find stuff for under 5 bucks.  Have you tried Old Navy?  I haven't been going in there lately cuz there prices got too high for my budget.
As far as being picky, at least you know what you like.

Evening ladies,

Latifah, sorry about your computer.  I hope you have a good weekend.

Cin, I made some brownies a few nights ago.  Nothing like a good chocolate brownie is there?  I hope you can find something closer that's comparable to your job's benefits and pay.

Wish, you are a very pretty woman.  That yungin' is lucky to have you. 

Mum, I hope you guys got all the material for your walk straightened out.

Jshort, I agree.  The more money one has, the more bills.  I'm happy with what I have right now.  Of course, there are things I would like to have; maybe someday when I can afford them.

Snow, that girl's drink night sounds fun.  If I still drank, I would so be there.  My problem is I can't stop once I start until I pass out.  I'm glad you're having fun though and taking time for you.  That's important.

Wendy, whenever I want a new outfit, I go to Goodwill or Salvation Army-seriously.  They usually have some nice clothes.  At least where I live.

Netta, that shirt is beautiful!  I wish I could do stuff like that.  I'm glad you'll have company for the 4th.

Well, today I paid bills, did laundry and went shopping.  I'm now broke again 'til next month. ;)  I don't have anything planned tomorrow, but I did get some brats, corn on the cob, potato salad and a big watermelon.  Hopefully Alex will be home to grill the corn and brats.  If not, I'll grill them myself.  Anything a man can do, a woman can do better, right ladies?  Have a good evening all.

Hey, Netta, I made the same top for my #6 in pink.  LOL..great minds think (and crochet) alike.  Did I send you the addresses for all the free patterns?  If not, PM me and I'll send them to you.  You can do the same top, but on the bottom, increase for a row, work even the next row, increase the next, then work even until it's the length you want it and YADA-BING!  You have a halter-top dress. 

Winn, I went to body shape and I'm a shape "A".  I still can't find anything that will fit me.  Plus, I only wear skirts or dresses and according to stores, they are "out of style".  I couldn't even find a dress around Easter time.  I have a terrible time finding things for the girls to wear, too.  I buy all their dresses in bigger sizes so their butts are covered.  I buy their shirts the same way.  They aren't allowed to leave the yard in anything that shows their belly.  All the shorts were either Daisy Dukes, or had words accrossed the butt.  So, I ended up making their shorts, and my dresses.  Nothing fancy, but we're not nekked ;D

Wish, you are one beautifical woman! 

We ended up not going back out.  The kids didn't get their naps and were too cranky to take out.  I'm going Monday to get the rest of the stuff.  It looks really nice already and I can picture what it's going to look like once it's done.  Right now we're having some significant rainfall, so Hubby and i went out to see how it was holding up.  It's doing just what we wanted it to do: cover up the low point in the yard between the back deck and the hill so we don't have to walk up the hill to get to the back nor do we now have to walk in mud and 4inch water every time it rains.  The drainage we put underneath is carrying the water away from that area and on down into our drainage pond. ;D

Not a whole lot going on.  When the kids go to bed, Hubby is going out in the rain into town to get me a Girl Scout Blizzard from DQ.  I may just let him sleep inside tonight after all..lol.

Much love to you all!

I haven't been in an Old Navy in a year or more. The only thing I have ever found there that would fit me was a tshirt. Most of the clothes I remember seeing are too youthful looking for me. Junior department kinda look.

The Goodwill or Salvation Army around here cost as much as Walmart I swear. I'd rather buy new Walmart than used thrift store. The vast majority of the clothes that I have are from Walmart. I don't particularly like what I wear but if I have it that means it was likely comfortable and cheap. LOL
Thats pretty much sums up my style. Cheap and comfortable. That is likely why I have such a hard time finding dressy clothes.
Its just soooo not me.
I'd rather wear a long skirt than a dress. With a skirt you can hide the crixo belly easier.
The juniors department of most stores drive me nuts. Everything is too thin and shows too much skin. And your right Mum the words across the ass just isn't attractive. Plus the junior department is usually way bigger than the misses department.

Billy left for Houston a couple of hours ago. He hasn't called yet to say he is there. I'm thinking he wont be there till 7:30 or 8.
I hate when he goes out of town. Even though he snores and talks in his sleep I miss having him next to me in bed.
It should be a boring weekend here. I hope he gets back all in one piece and really quick. He's my best friend.

netta --- the shirt is beautiful!!!! I wish I could do things like that!!!! Ive been wanting to learn how to crochet for the longest time but have nobody to teach me, maybe oneday.

oh and about the clothing shopping ladies, I HATE clothing shopping these days :'( I still have 20lbs left that i havent lost from my last pregnancy. I'm extremely depressed and haven't bought any new clothes. im trying to lose weight but its just not working which leaves me frustrated. I cant stand to buy clothing bigger then what i already have in my closet, call me crazy but thats just how i am. So I'll either be stuck in sweats the rest of my life or I'll  lose weight, lol.

when i was clothing shopping I loved H&M. My style varies, i love jeans and casual things but I also love skirts and dresses too. I usually can find just about anything from H&M but clearance of course because they can be a bit pricy.

win-- I used to like old navy too, they were always reasonable, i dont know what happened their prices have become outrages. Oh and no thanks to the plastic beads. whatever happened to classic styles???

I've never seen a H&M. LOL
I'm about 20- 25 lbs heavier than what I consider my normal weight. The only thing I've done to manage my weight is I started trying to drink only one sugared drink a day. The rest is diet or tea with splenda.
Aside from that I still eat fairly unhealthy often LOL Just keeping it real...

I had a chocolate shake today and I stuffed my face this evening for dinner and I think I'm going to have another sugared soda.  :o

Yesterday I ate a candy bar. LOL

The reason I like Goodwill and Salvation Army is that I can find really good quality clothes at reasonable prices.  I know they're more expensive than what they used to be; that's why I go to Goodwill on 1/2 off day.  The Salvation Armys here are pretty cheap.  I have to watch the clothes I get from them though; sometimes they have holes and tears.

Hey, I lost 10 lbs within the last 3 months, I believe it's from cutting way down on the sugar (to almost zero) and not snacking a lot in between meals.  But, I yo-yo with my weight, so it'll probably go back up.  I know I have a king-sized Hershey bar waiting for me as soon as I'm off here. ;)

Well, I'm still spotting.  This will make the 4th week.  But, Snow (I think that's who it was) said she bled for a month, then it stopped.  So, I'll give it a little more time. 

Nothing else happening.  Have a good evening ladies.

I guess I should say good morning. Still have not heard anything else about the house...Grrrr. I did get the car title transfered into my name, so I drove for a bit and the damn car started overheating. Took the thermastat out but I think the fan is broke or the fuse blew to the fan. I have to get the car inspected next week but I can still drive up til then. But with it overheating like it is, I only go short distances.

Happy 4th of July. I really don't have anything planned but to stay around the house with my one roomie while she bbq. I think we are having steak, shrimp and corn on the cob. I got my demon kitty fixed, no more kittens. He was a bit wobbly from the pain shot but he is doing better. After awhile he started trying to jump Nefertiti again but it's almost like she knows he is fixed and willing to give him some now. I have to watch out for his stitches. He got all his shots but one. He'll get it next month, money willing.

Nice pics Wishful. You better enjoy the down time w/o the kids, they may just come back early. Sorry to hear about you and the young star's arguing but nothing beats make up sex. I hope things work out for you.

I'm sorry I can't seem to remember what everyone has been saying. Feels like I am getting forgetful or just too blazed, not sure which really... ;D But I just wanted to stop by and post. I know it will probably be majorly slow in here tomorrow. Enjoy the holiday, ladies...

Good morning my sweeties!  It is a dull and dreary gray day with a forecast of more dreary and more gray mixed in with some rain.  But, it's going to be cooler, so I won't complain too much (at least not right now). 

Queen: have you checked the radiator fluid?  DON'T CHECK IT WHILE THE ENGINE IS HOT!  It will spray and burn.  If your radiator fluid is low, the car will overheat.  If you aren't sure how to check it, most gas stations will check it for free.  MMMMMM! steak and shrimp...slap on some extra for me.

Nothing much going on today.  I need to make some cornbread to bring to my parents' house today and sugar-free chocolate cupcakes to bring to their house tomorrow.  We'll head over there about 3pm - after everyone gets up from thier nap (including me).  I think we're going to go out for breakfast.  Yeah, Hubby is still kissing butt.  I'm not sore at him anymore, but I'm not going to complain about the kissing...lol.  The Blizzard was really good last night.  It had chunks of chocolate and Girl Scout thin mint cookies.  YUM!

Everyone have a great day and be safe.

Love to  you all,

Morning ladies,

Queen, I'm glad you've at least got the car running.  How far do you go before it overheats?

Mum, I've seen those Campfire girls DQ blizzards advertised.  They look really good.  I haven't had one yet (yet).

Today there's nothing going on.  Later, Alex is going to (hopefully) grill out some brats and corn; I also got some potato salad and watermelon.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.  I think Joe may be coming over.   Speaking of Alex.......I think I'm going to give him one or two more weeks, and then tell him that he needs to find somewhere else to go.  I can't support two people on disability.  I don't even want to.  I hate to sound selfisih, but that's my money and I need to watch it very closely.  Anyway, if my landlord or section 8 found out, I might lose my place to live. 

Well, I really don't have anything else to report right now.  I hope you ladies have a good morning.

Good Morning ladies.   Welcome to the new ladies. It's basically one big family here and everyone is great.                                              Betty, I will be 36 on July 9th.   You know what  is best concerning Alex. I'm sure that disability barely supports 1 person, much less 2 and section 8 will pitch a fit. Hope all that works out for you. Maybe he will get more motivated if you give him a deadline.                                         Queen, glad you got tires and the title done for your car. Hope fully the overheating is something minor, like the radiator needs to be flushed or something simple like that.     I got my Nighty fixed a couple years ago and he doesn't seem to mind. He was mad at me for a couple months after though.   Sweet Girl is pregnant again. I hope she can carry them to term, she is so small, I am worried for her. As soon as the kittens are weaned, she gets fixed too.                    Wishful and Netta, love the pictures. They are great.                           I like to go to the Goodwill in Greensboro. I got a really cute summer dress but have been eating so much that it shows my fat belly. I also got a Liz Claiborne shirt for $3.00.  I got another dress but once I got it home, it's not very flattering. My mom says it looks like a old lady dress. Oh well, not like I am a spring chicken anymore.                                                                                    Vivyt, how do you do it. I have one 5 year old and he drives me nuts sometimes. I can't imagine a whole room full. You teachers are the best.                                                                                      Mum, go with hubby and make sure he gets the right stuff. If you want it done right, most of the time you must do it yourself.    I love that you ladies make clothes for your children. We mostly hit Walmart and wait for sales.     Hope everyone has a great 4th of July.     I have the day off and am just gonna be lazy.        TTYL. Cristy

Betty: I don't think you are being selfish at all, especially since if it can make you homeless.  If he's a real friend, he'll understand.  I think you've gone well out of your way to help in out, but no one can do everything.  I think you've been great and very patient and giving.  It's time for him to move on (just don't tell him until after he cooks ;))

Looks like our plans are changing.  My parents have a stream that runs acrossed, well under, part of their driveway.  So, part of the driveway, in essence, is a bridge over the stream.  Well, she just called as we were loading the kids into the car, to let us know that the stream has overflowed the bridge.  Our truck could probably make it, but we couldn't see if there were logs or rocks in the way.  Anyway, she said she'd call in about an hour to let us know if the stream has gone back down under the bridge.  I hope so.  She's got a ton of BBQ chicken in the crock pot and I've got a mound of cornbread..lol.

I'd better get the kiddies a snack just in case we can't get to Nana's until late.

Hope everyone is having a great 4th!

It doesn't sound selfish to me. He is a grown man he should be taking care of himself.

Evening ladies,

Well, I ended up grilling the stuff (corn and brats) myself.  Alex left early with Joe to go to some family thing.  I asked him a couple days ago if he would grill today and he said yes.  So, fuck it; I did it myself.  I don't need a man to do the grilling (hee).   And I'm happy to report, it all turned out good and I'm still full.  I also had potato salad and I cut up a big, seedless watermelon.  The rest of it (watermelon) is in a pan in the fridge.

Mum and Wendy, you guys are right.  If I lost my section 8, I'd be screwed.  I'd end up in the homeless shelter.  I'm not sure if I'm going to tell him tonight or wait until the weekend is over.  But, it's going to be soon.  He should really be supporting himself.  He's going to be 49 in August for heaven's sake.  My best gay friend told me Alex is probably enjoying being taken care of.  I used to do that all the time (take care of broke/needy men).  I vowed to myself when I got clean this last time (2 & 1/2 years ago) that I wouldn't do it again.  Because there are several needy men (well, people) at NA meetings.  And I tend sometimes to be a caretaker.  After this, I'm not moving anyone else in.  OK, end of rant.

Mum, I hope you got to your mother's. 

Wendy, have you heard from Billy?  Did he make it o.k.?

I hope everyone is having a good 4th.  Drag, thanks for wishing us a good one.  Take care ladies.  I may be back later; if not, tomorrow.

Yeah, I've talked to him a few times today.

I even unknowingly gave his sisters a earful of how bad my temper can get. LOL I wasn't mad at Billy I was mad at Harold.
<the old man I take care of>
Harold was playing me and Billy like a kid does Mommy and Daddy and I called Billy yelling about it without realising I was on speaker phone.
After I was done with my rant he chuckles a little and says honey, I forgot when I answered the phone to tell you that the speaker phone was on. Then I could hear sisters giggling.

Kinda funny now, a little embarrassing then.  ;D

Happy 4th Ladies.

Its days like this that make me think of the sacrafices our servicemen make everyday to ensure this countries independance. Not to mention, My man is an Infantry Gunner with the US Army. Im very proud to be with someone who has made such sacrafices for our country and have much respect for those families who tolerate the endless stream of bullshit military life brings. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!! ;D

Ok well Queen, Im sorry to hear your having car problems. Do you know anybody who can hook you up and look at it without charging you an arm and a leg?

Win-- at least they laughed. we all can have a temper sometimes dont be embarrssed, it happens.

Betty---im new and dont really know exactly what your situation is but i'm like you i tend to mother people. You need to be selfish sometimes. Nobodys going to do for you but you. Think of yourself, be good to yourself and dont sacrafice your well being for others.

well my day was ok. I just hung out with a friend of mine who recently had knee surgery. she needed some help because she really cant walk. I helped her with a few things and we just had some girl time w/o the husbands. it was nice. My boyfriend went to his friends house. I stayed home because i think the loud fireworks will scare the baby. I dont mind being home with him, hes asleep and its peaceful. Pluse im very tired today, my muscles ache for some reason. on that note im going to bed early. I hope you ladies had a great day.

I just got back from being out with my parents and two nieces, ages 6 and 7.  Mom was whining for wine the entire time, what else is new?  Dinner ended up being fun, I played with the girls, sitting in the booth in between them.  We went down to the city park to watch the fireworks and there was absolutely no breeze tonight.  The smoke from the fireworks covered up the full view of the rest they shot off.  It was kind of funny, "OK, everyone....BLOW!"  LMAO, JK   ;D  If the breeze picked up even the slightest bit then we would have had fireworks and not glowing smoke clouds, lol.  We went for ice cream, too.  I had Cake Batter flavor, that is my newest fave!

Iceman stayed home with his girls cause we had a lot of rain move through earlier, esp out his way.  Mum, did you make it across the bridge?  Oh, btw, I put down bricks to pave a walk a few years ago with an ex.  Had to fill in with sand and all sorts of stuff, so I feel your pain.  Sounds like the walkway will be beautiful when its done!  Are you psyched for Mexico City?  I can't believe you're going with Mini!  I guess I keep thinking it'll be a party 24/7, but perhaps not.  I know there will be some serious moments, too.  Maybe you and I can make it to the Fall mini gathering (ha ha MINI gathering...) in the South if it isn't too far.

Betty~  Glad to hear you have "full belly."  That's the best way to be.  Since I have checked in late, how long has your roomie been staying with you?  Can you charge any rent at all?  I suppose not or you would be doing that already....Hang in there and be firm!

Jshort~  My brother is in the Army, a gunner in Chinook helicopters, with 5 tours in Afghanistan to date.  He is on US soil this holiday, thank goodness.  Its his girls (my two nieces) that are here visiting.  I am so proud of my brother, he's awesome!

God Bless America and Our Freedom and Our Troops!

Morning ladies,

Jshort, it's always nice to have girl time.

Cin, "glowing smoke clouds," eh?  That's funny.  No, I'm not charging the person who's here any rent; he's not working.  I've been supporting him (well, all but the $40 he gave me a few weeks back).   I'm glad your brother's home right now.  Will he be able to stay here now?  5 tours seems more than enough. 

Well, last night I told Alex he has to leave by Tuesday.  He said he would.  He knows my situation and didn't give me any problems.  So I was thankful for that.  I told him the landlord called.  I know, I know, cheater's way out. But hey, it could have very well turned out that way.  My landlord is a stickler about letting other people live with his renters.  So, hopefully by Wednesday, I'll have the place to myself again.

I kept going outside last night because in my neighborhood, they were shooting off the big fireworks (the kind that go way up in the air and light up the sky).  It was pretty cool.  I don't know what time they stopped; I fell asleep probably a little after midnight.  People all around my apartment house were shooting them off.  A really big one went off and my cat, who was sitting in the kitchen looking out the door, took off so fast that she actually moved the rug I have sitting in front of my shoerack 1/2 way across the kitchen floor.  It was funny.  My poor cat.  She probably thought the Iraqis were here. :)

I'm going to wait for Liz to call today.  Hopefully she'll call before it gets too late this afternoon.  I really don't know why I'm up right now.  My eyes are still tired.  But, I'm up, so up I'll stay.  Mum, I hope you got to your cookout yesterday.  And I hope everyone else had a good 4th.  I'll be back later.  Take care ladies.

Oh Wendy, I'm glad you heard from Billy.  Funny story, btw.

We ended up making it to my parents' house yesterday afternoon.  We had to drive over about 4 inches of water that was rushing over the top of the bridge, but all was well.  It was really cool outside, but the kids still wanted to swim, so we let them.  Poor things!  The water was freezing, but they refused to get out.  Hubby went in with them.  Today we're supposed to have less rain (hopefully, none) and we'll be going back to my parents' for mom's side of the family.  It's nice, I don't have to cook for a few days.  Tomorrow after church, we'll go back for leftovers.  Oh, before I forget, if any of you are near a Staples, they are having a HUGE sale tomorrow.  There's a whole bunch of stuff for a penny and 3-ring binders for a quarter.  We're heading over tomorrow afternoon to stock up.

Cindy: yeah, Mini and I are heading for Mexico.  The folks that are going are being so wonderful to us (well, to her.  I just get the love by proxie..lol)  Right after we get home, we're leaving for our family vacation to the beach.  Not sure about a mini-gathering down south.  I'd love to go, just not sure we could afford it.  I'm hoping that they'll do AMG somewhere up north next year.  Philly, Hershey, even DC.  That way, we could go for a long weekend or just drive up for some of the events and drive back home.  But, we'll see what happens.

The walkway will look great and perfectly hides the drainage we had to put in to stop the mud and standing water.  We had to dig and haul up 10 loads of dirt .  It wasn't fun.  We kept going out to check on it during the storms yesterday and evrything held.  When everything is set, we'll spread Stay-crete on it then wet it with the hose.  That way, the sand stones will be set and kids can't pick them up and use them as weapons.

Betty: I'm glad that the conversation went well.  We had some neighbors popping off fireworks last night.  They weren't the pretty kind, just the kind that makes a loud BOOM! and scares the kids to tears.  Hubby will be doing the honors of grilling today.  My dad usually does it, but he's off working a contract (he's a helicopter pilot) in one of the Dakotas.

Winni, I'm glad that Billy made it safetly.  When will you be joining him, or will he come home and then the 2 of you go back together?  I understand how you feel about being alone.  When Hubby had to fly to meetings, I couldn't stand it.  I sware the house creaked and moaned only when he was away. 

Well, I have 3 dozen sugar-free chocolate cupcakes to make for this afternoon.  I'll check back in tonight.  Be good and be safe!

Love you all!
Mum

Good morning ladies. Hope everyone had a good 4th.  My dad grilled steaks,yummy, and we ate them ,salad, baked potatoes. It was soooooo good.  Robert and I went walking and I picked him blackberries. He'll eat as many as you will pick for him .                               Betty, glad that Alex agreed to move on with no fuss.  You are a very caring and giving person but must look out for you first. I know, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know but still glad there was no fuss.                                                   Moonlight, glad you got to spend time with your nieces and glad your brother is home.  8 months with Iceman, you go girl!!!!!                                               Jshort, how old is your baby. I have a 5 yo boy and still call him my baby.                                                                                            Win, I hate speaker phone. I just got rid of a guy that whenever I would call he would put me on speakerphone, I guess so his friends could hear it.   I realize  that is not Billy's intention and am glad that he is able to be there with his family in this trying time.                           Minismum, glad you were able to get to your mom's and have a great time. Also very wise to do the walk way that way. I love this statement you made
That way, the sand stones will be set and kids can't pick them up and use them as weapons.



          I realize it wasn't meant to be funny but I laughed out loud when I read it.      you are right, anything can be used as a weapon if you are angry or desperate enough.      You and Mini are going to Mexico?  Hope you have a great time.         Anybody I missed, hope you have a great day. We will just be chilling, I will fill Robert's little pool later and let him play in it. Maybe go for a walk or something and tomorrow I work from 8 am until about 4pm. Hopefully we will be slammed and make much money. I am almost caught up.   TTYL.    Cristy

Hi Everyone-
Just stopping in to say HI - we had an uneventful 4th.  My Mom and Dad came out for a while.  I had to go get my meds and get some soda for the elderly lady I volunteer for.  She doesn't get her Meals on Wheels delivery on holidays so I brought her some food, too.  It must really suck being that old and having no one to talk too and living all by herself.

I'm gonna try to get more stuff out of the office today.  Supposedly, we are supposed to go to a cookout at my SO's mothers today for 2 but I doubt we will.  We have lived here almost 5 years and I think the trip  lets have seen thier grandmother, maybe 6 times and she only lives a couple of miles away. 

Oh, my mother brought me a letter yesterday from my olders sons father. Who is upset because he didn't get any fathers day cards. He actually wrote something like he is so hurt, he doesn't want anything to do with his kids anymore, no one respects me after all he has tried to do as a father.  ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?  You are in jail, asshole!! You don't spend anytime with your kids, you suck as a father, by all means don't talk to him anymore, like he is going to care.   UUgghhhhh!!  Thanks for letting me vent! :)

Have a good day!

Morning again ladies,

Mum, I'm glad you got to go to your parents'.  It's always nice not having to cook.  I also laughed at what you said about the stones.  Hey, I know, kids will use anything when they're aggravated.  It sounds like it's coming along nicely.  Thanks for the heads-up about Staples.  I think there's one not too far from me and I could use a couple 3-ring binders for when I go back to school this fall.   I'm so glad you and Mini will be able to go to Mexico City.  I'd love to go, but I really can't afford it.  I don't know if I'll be going to the mini-gathering either.  Alan (Alanbama) pm'd me about it and I've been reading the thread.  We'll see.  I'm not sure when they'll be doing it.  I'd want to rent a car to drive to wherever they're having it. 

Cristy, I don't blame Robert for eating all those blackberries.  I love them as well and wish we had some around here.  When I was a kid, my mum would take my brother and I for walks on Saturdays; we would go to this once place that had wild strawberries and I loved to munch on them. 

Snow, your oldest son's father is a pure jackass.  I read that and thought "wtf?"  He's just on the pity-pot and it sounds like he's going to take a shit on it.  Let him stew; what an asshole.  I wouldn't even justify that with a response.  Anyway, I hope you get to do something today. 

I'm hoping that I don't have to keep reminding Alex that he's got to be out by Tuesday.  He has some strange habits (not showering for two weeks at a time, or brushing his teeth) and doesn't help me out around here anyway.  I was going to tell him he has to be out by Monday, but I thought I'd give him an extra day.  I hope he's planning on taking all the stuff he's moved over here with him.  I haven't been in the basement yet, but I know he moved quite a bit of stuff down there.  I'm going to tell him Monday he's got to take it all.  If my landlord sees a bunch of extra boxes in the basement, he won't like it; the basement is really small and to have a lot of stuff down there would just be a mess. 

My friend Liz called and we're going to go out to eat at an Arabic restaurant today.  I've never had Arabic food, but Liz claims it's really good. I told her I'm willing to try new things as long as the person can assure me it's good; and she said it is.  So, I will be broadening my horizons today.  I'm not sure what we're going to do afterwards.  Probably just bum around somewhere.  She doesn't smoke anymore; she quit a little over a month ago, so I'll be smoking outside.  Which is alright.  I'm still smoking outside here and I've found out it helps me cut down on how much I smoke.  It also smells much better in my apartment (and my cat is happy to be able to breathe clean air also).  I never let my cat outside, so she was breathing second-hand smoke.  I never thought about that until a friend of mine mentioned it to me when I was still smoking inside.  I haven't smoked inside now for about three weeks.

Well, I suppose I've gone on long enough.  I hope everyone has a good, safe day.  I'll be back later.

Mum, thank you about the info on Staples. I was just looking it up online wondering when the sale was going to be. This is the time I stock up for the next school year. I buy folders, pencil sharpners, etc. for the students and it is amazing how quickly it all adds up!

Talk to you all soon!

Afternoon ladies,

Not much action today.  I went out to lunch with Liz and had something called folafal (I know that's spelled wrong).  And tobuli and baklava.  It was all delicious.  Anyway, I hope everyone's have a good day.

Hey Everyone---

My fourth was nice. We had steak, shrimp, and pork roll on the grill. I made some banging potato salad and we had corn on the cob. My gay roomie was at work. By 5, we were eating. I then made my way to my bf house to chill with her and show her the car running. My godson wanted to see it since it is his car. I also checked on the kitten I gave her. We might have to get her to the vet, she seems to be having stomach probs and runny bm. After leaving there, I went to visit my oldest sister who is sick with something going around. I just hope I don't get it. I was back home by 8. I felt bad because I didn't check in with you all but I must admit it felt nice to drive again and be busy.

The car is due to get inspected next week. I thought I had the rearview fixed but it fell again. I got out today and took the car to the car wash to vacuum it out and spray some perfume to get the mildew smell out. It seems to be working but I bought some Febreeze for cars just in case. We still haven't heard anything about the house which is frustrating us but we intend to be out of here hopefully by the third week of this month. We figured what my ASO pays would give us that long. But funny since my case manager talked to my landlord, he has not even been around to try to get his rent. So, I guess he must be considering this month my 30 days. So, I may be missing for a week or so depending on how long it takes the cable company to set the internet up at the other place. The other place being a house where one of my roomies use to live, the rent is only 375 so if we don't get the house we want, we may just stay there for a few and try to save up money. Which is something we all need to do.

Yeah, I got a pm from Iggy about the Southern Mini AMG. I wanted to go but I may not be able to. My oldest sister came into a nice piece of change and wants me to go to Georgia to visit our uncle who hasn't seen us since we were kids. He has talked to us though and my sister stays in contact with him. Also my brother is down there but we're really not going to see him. And since she is footing the bill, it would be a nice little vacation away from here.

At the present, my only concern is getting ready for this move and getting this car ready for the trip to Pittsburgh next month. Chat with you all later and much love to you all.

What another L O N G day.  Oh, my goodness.  We left the house about 2 and jsut got home at 10:30.  We put the kdis to bed and haven't heard a peep from them.  I just took my allergy meds, so If I start typing non-sense..lol..just try to figure it out :P  After swimming and eating all day, we went to the lake for fireworks that were postponed from yesterday.  It was a beautiful day and a perfect night.  Cindy, we ended up having some sparkly clouds, too, so they held up a bit on to let the smoke clear.  When it happened, I thought of you.

After church, and a trip to Staples, and some lunch, we're going back to my parents' house for leftovers and more swimming.  The bad thing about not cooking for 3 days is that I don't have any leftovers for lunch.  Monday I've got to go grocery shopping.  We have no more bread for sandwiches, I have 1 egg, no baking mix (for biscuits and pancakes), and our cubbards are looking a wee bit slim.  And, I'm down to my last gallon of milk that will be gone after breakfast tomorrow.

Viv, in our state, the kids never have to bring any school supplies.  Every county, by law, has to supply every student with crayons, pencils, paper, kleenexes, scissors, tape, notebooks, folders, whatever.  Our county got in some serious trouble because up until last year it was sending out supply lists for parents to buy stuff.  i guess no one complained until someone found out about the law.  The thing was that the school system was getting the money to buy the stuff, but was using the money for other stuff and they couldn't show what.  Now, understand that in our county, there's exactly 3 schools: 1 elementary, 1 middle, and 1 highschool.  But, we homeschool, so we're always looking for deals to stock up for our kids.  And, hey, a penny and 25-cents is hard to pass up.

For some odd, unknown reason, Hubby is watching 1 of the Rambo movies.  I think that's my cue to go to bed.

Giant bundles of love to you all!
Mum

edited because I forgot to tell you: my aunt is giving me some "fresh" honey from her neighbor.  Supposedly, honey produced with-in a 20 mile radius, when taken every day, cuts down and then stops pollin-related allergy issues.  I DON'T recommend trying this without talking to your ID doc 1st.  I know that Mini can NOT have honey of any kind due to some bacteria that she may not be able to fight, that is found in honey.  But, if you are suffering, it would be worth talking about.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Ok, nighty night!

Morning ladies,

Queen, good luck with your car. 

Mum, I'm glad someone found out about the school needing to supply the stuff and made them responsible.  I hate when government institutions of any kind don't do what they're supposed to do; especially concerning children.  When I was in school, and my daughter, we were responsible for that stuff.  I don't know what to say about your hubby watching Rambo.  He doesn't have a resentment against anyone, does he (hee)?

Liz called me last night (after we went out to lunch), about 9:30 and wanted to know if I wanted to go out for ice cream.  I would have gone, except that I had just mowed down some Reese's.  And I gotta watch that sugar intake.  So, we talked for about an hour.  I think maybe next weekend, if I don't have anything going on, I might ask her out for lunch.  That restaurant we went to yesterday I wasn't familiar with at all-I didn't even know it existed.  I'm glad I remained open-minded though and tried it.  It was just deliicious.  I might try to find another unique restaurant next weekend and take her there.

Well, I'm hoping Alex gets in gear pretty soon and gets moving out.  He's acting like he has all the time in the world.  I guess if I'm backed into a corner, I'll talk to my landlord and have him talk to Alex.  Of course, I might be wrong-maybe Alex will do something in the next couple days.  I told him Tuesday, so it's not like he has to be out today.  I was just assuming I'd see some movement in that direction. 

I have nothing planned today.  Someone asked me yesterday if I wanted to go to a sex toy party.  I said I would if I had the extra money to spend.  I've never been to one of those and probably should've said yes just for the experience.   Anyway, my brother comes over tonight so we can watch some more of "The Wire."  Other than that, it's going to be another lazy day.  I'll be back later.  Have a good one ladies.

Hi Girls-
Betty- Glad things went well with telling Alex.  Tabouleh is really good with pita bread, you might like hummus too.  My friend was dating a guy from Saudi Arabia and they introduced me to it.  I have never been to sex toy party either, they must be pretty funny though, I can just imagine what people talk about.


Mum- I have never heard of that law, I wonder if that is the same in every state.  I have to go check out Staples myself.

Queen- You must be very excited driving around.  I hope your stereo works good :)

I got my pantry closet set up yesterday, the office totally cleaned.  Hopefully tonight her room will get painted.  Last night at 12:30, I was wetting down my ceiling to see if I could scrap off that annoying popcorn shit, it came off good in the hallway, where it wasn't painted over, it is going to be harder in the rooms.

I hope everyone has a good day, I think I will scraping all day.

Good afternoon all my honies.  I am so tired that I can't see straight, and we're getting ready to leave again.  After church, we grabbed a quick lunch, went to Staples, Lowes, gas, and just got home.  My mom invited us back for leftovers.  There's tons of food left and since we're now out of bread, milk, deoderant, and crackers, (I still have 1 egg..lol), and I haven't been to the grocery store, the invite of another day not cooking is too good to pass up.  And, it's pretty warm here, so swimming will feel good, too. 

Tomorrow is going to be sunny and HOT, so I'll get the laundry done and hung out.  Then, off to the grocery store for me and #6 while the others play outside and Hubby finishes the walkway.  YEAH!!!

Snow: We've still got the office / school room to get done and I'd like to fix the downstairs bathroom so we can use it.  Not quite sure how to act with 2 bathrooms..lol.  Then, we'll be able to paint the boys room, then the girls' room, then one day, the family room and hallway. It never ends, does it?

Betty: to my knowledge, he's not hiding any smoldering anger..lol.  I left him with Rambo and went to bed.  2 late nights in a row and I am so done for. 

Alrighty, I'd better get going.  All the kids have changed into play clothes and are chomping at the bit to leave.  If I don't get to talk to you all tonight, I'll catch you in the morning.

Moochies all the way around!

Afternoon ladies,

Snow, happy scraping!

Mum, I'm glad you'll be able to eat leftovers tomorrow.  I meant to ask you before-I know Mini's diabetic.  What (if any) meds is she on for that?

Well, another noneventful day.  Alex took off to be with his uncles and dad.  Hopefully he's checking into somewhere to stay.  When he gets back tonight, I'm going to tell him the landlord called again to check on the progress of him moving out.  Maybe that'll light a little fire.

I have nothing to report.  I just got done watching "Ruthless People."  I think that movie's hilarious.  Have a good one ladies.

The house is quite and i'm in my chill mood. My 4th was good. We grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and pork chops. We had salad and baked beans for the sides. I hope everyone is having a great day.

Hi ladies!

Well, Moon I know what its like to have military family. Its a proud, yet scary thing. Im glad your brother is safe and appreciate the sacrafice he and his family have made for us.

Betty-- glad to hear you'll have the place to yourself again and things went well.

Mum- glad you made it to your mothers. Kids, they'll swim no matter how cold, lol. Im glad they had fun!

CJC- my baby is 7months old, but I have a 4 year old "baby" as well. My boys are mamas boys, very attached to their mommy. I dont mind it at all. I actually love every bit of it, my girls are a bit more independent.

To all the other ladies I missed, I hope all is well with you today.

As for me, nothing exciting going on today. Just hanging around the house. This months bills have sucked us dry of any money we had so a movie or dinner is out of the question. We may go to the park or something we will see. Besides that life is pretty boring by me, I guess thats not a bad thing. I just figured I'd check in and say hello. I'll prob be back tomorrow. Enjoy your night GF's

Nothing going on with me either, just braiding my hair. That's a chore in itself plus it is hot out. I will be running back in my room with the ac when I am done posting here. My roomie and her friend is out working on the car, trying to fix the fan on the engine so it doesn't overheat. The thermostat was taken out and that helps some but if the fan would work I guess that would help even more. Also has to figure out why the horn and the wipers aren't working. I know she came up once and said something about the motor on the wipers continually running even when the car is cut off, not sure what that is about.

Betty-- I know what you mean about people not trying to leave when they're suppose to. Does Alex have a lot of stuff? Maybe he is just waiting til the day of, btw, why is he leaving? Or did you give him the boot?

Snow--My stereo isn't in the car yet, for now roomie is doing things to make sure it passes inspection on Thursday. The stereo will be put in after I suppose.

It is hot as hades in my living room so I am going back to my bedroom before I fall out. Be back later.

I havent really read much of your posts. I have been real sick. I'm still sick but at the moment my temp is down.
Billy drove back home Saturday night to take care of me. I caught some kinda ear nose and throat thing and my temps have been higher than usual all day long not just in the evenings like they usually are.
I'm real tired so I dont know how much longer I'll stay online.

I'll catch up with you all later.

Win- I hope you feel better, I am glad Billy was able to come home to be with you.

I got my daughters ceiling scraped today so my arms are killing me.  I am watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition, it always makes me tear up, this one is about a single father of 4 who is a Marine and lost a leg in Iraq.

Hope everyone has a good night!!!

Evening ladies,

Keeping, your 4th of July dinner sounds yummy.

J, I know what you mean about bills.  I always get a little down when I pay mine at the beginning of the month.

Queen, Alex is leaving because I told him he had to go.  I told him the landlord wants him out; which would really be the case if the landlord knew the whole story (about him being here a month already).  I told the landlord (today) Alex has only been here a week and that he's leaving on Tuesday.  I really want him out.  This is only an efficiency and it's too small for two people.  Plus, feeding two on just my disability check is getting to be too much.  And he is a hustler (not in a good way either).

Wendy, I sure hope you get to feeling better.  You seem to have a lot of trouble keeping healthy.  You're in my thoughts.

Snow, are you still going to be scraping tomorrow?

My brother came over.  We usually watch The Wire that he gets from the video store ('cause I didn't see it from season 1), but he said the DVD we needed was out.  So, we're also watching The Sopranos from season 1 and we caught up on that.  I like both shows and I wish they were both still on.  I cancelled HBO after the last episode of The Wire. 

I'm waiting for Alex to get back.  I'm going to remind him it's only two days until Tuesday.  I suppose if I really do have to get the landlord involved, I will.  That way he would have to leave.  I hope it doesn't come to that, but if it does, oh well.  I don't like someone trying to hustle me.  Anyway, I hope you ladies have a pleasant night.  I'm going to check out a few more threads and watch some t.v.

Dear All

Hello to you all, if I am not here for a while this section moves on so fast - but I wanted to say hi and also

A BIG WELCOME [/color] [/size]
To the new women who have joined from me in the UK.

It is great that this group is so well used and I hope you all like being here as much as I have? When I found this group earlier in the year I felt very isolated and I was just so relived as I just had few other conversations with Positive women at all.

I have not been around because I have had a bit of difficulty for the past 2 weeks or so with nausea and diarrheia which seems to come on 2 hours after I take my meds and then keeps me up all night, so I get very tired as I have not been having a lot of sleep, so just lacked the concentration for reading or writing on the forum. I hope it is not the meds because I do not want to have to change. But I am OK today as I had a good night so it may have been a bug. I go and get checked at my clinic tomorrow so I hope all is OK

I have also been very busy.

We try to make the most of the limited summer in the UK as it is very short and quickly goes back to grey and wet days - it was sunny but now it is raining hard, windy and quite cold

Also in the summer I let out a holiday apartment attached to my farmhouse in Cornwall, and have a small camping field, because I live in an area that tourists desire to come and in a pretty rural place. And now my husband has had to retire form work due to HIV complications the income from this is very important so I have a lot of work to do to make sure the gardens, flower tubs are looking good and the lawns and camp area cut - we have lots of lawn and that the visitors are happy and I clean the apartment etc.

But I have also been busy because I joined a UK HIV + women’s organisation called PozFem and became the regional coordinator for my area which is Cornwall UK. Their web site herehttp://www.poz-fem-uk.org/index.html

There are now coordinators in most areas of the UK.

And they have recently written a public consultation document called 'Women, HIV and Sexual Health in the UK' which is a great document and while I was not part of writing it as I joined later, it really speaks for me!!
Statements like 'Nothing about us without us' are so important to my perspective.

If anyone here wants to see what some UK, HIV + are saying you can read a PDF version online through this link:

http://www.poz-fem-uk.org/docs/WomenHIVandSexualHealth.pdf
Because we want it as widely read as possible I have been very busy driving around to distribute it anywhere that may provide services in my area for HIV + women or come across HIV + women i.e doctors surgeries, hospital departments, contraception and sexual health clinics, women’s groups, health promotion teams, health visitors, drug and alcohol and addition teams, mental health teams, youth provision.....and more.

it is a public document and their are so many places I could distribute it, and where I live is very rural so you have to drive some miles to do it. I have posted some but prefer to deliver them in person so as to have a conversation with those I give them too.

Anyway i am sorry this post is so much about me and what I have been doing. I have read the thread so far btu so much has happened that I find it hard to know where to start in responding

But happy birthday to Cristy for the 9th  :)

Great title for this thread Mum - we have to do our path (walkway) up to our front door too over this summer, it is a lot of work I know as we have done others ones and this is the last we need to do - we are tying to get stones but despite Cornwall being a place with lots of quarrying and mining real stones are often beyond what we can afford so it might have to be slabs or even just gravel and concrete

Vivyt - this hit my reality too:
Quote
She is 18 but thinks she is 25 until she is missing us....You know the age, "I don't need anyone. I'm independent!" Yeah right...LOL

As I have a daughter, just 19 for whom this statement applies so well!! Good Luck!!
Cindy - I am glad it is still going so well with Iceman and that it may for many years to come. I have been with my husband for over 25 years and married for 21 and I am still in love with him, and he me, despite his 'mistake' relay nothing has ever changed that, we are very lucky and form what you say it sounds like it will be good for you too.

Great pictures wishful, you are very beautiful, good phone too. I had one that took good pics but lost it last week along with pics I had taken- I always lose phones  >:(

I find shopping for clothes depression too Winroo. I do not know what the equivalent in US is but I am a UK size 14 on the borrow but 16 to 18 on the top and everything looks awful to me when i try it on!!

I hope all who celebrate the 4th in the US had a great time - it is not something that here in the UK we hear or know much about but I know it is an important holiday of many in the US, so I hope it was GREAT ;D


if I have not mentioned all, I am sorry but I am thinking of you all and have read what you have all said and hope you have a great day when you all wake up - it is 9.29am  here and I am off to water aerobics in a minute


Love Veritee XX

Good morning ladies,
 Just popping in to say a quick hello before I go back to bed for a bit. I wake up every morning at 5am with my boyfriend to make sure he has his coffee breakfast and lunch for work. I feel its the least I could do considering I get to stay home mon-fri with the kids. When he leaves I usually go back to bed for an hour or two.

Nothing much going on today, just stressing money. The economy is horrible and we're really feeling it this month  :'(

We're struggling to pay the bills and handle the household expenses. It kinda has my stomach in knots. My boyfriend is really upset about it, Im doing my best to tell him everything will be fine but deep down I know how he feels.....I guess I'll rest for a bit then spend my day attempting to figure out how to make things a bit better for us here... I'll be back later after i wake up

until then GF's ;)

Morning ladies,

Veritee, sounds like you've really been busy.  I'm glad you got involved with that organization.   It's summer here right now also, and will be for the next month and 1/2 (at least).  Sometimes the hot temps stick around until the middle of September.  And sometimes we get warm temps at different times in October. 

Jshort, I can totally relate to what you're saying about stressing over finances.  Is there any foodbanks close to you?  Where I live there's several, and I don't live in a huge city or anything.  Most of them go according to the zip code or county.  They help me out a lot.  My stressing usually comes near the end of the month, because on the 3rd is when I get my disability check.  I try to write out a budget for each month and stick to it as best as I can, but unexpected expenses always come up.  I can't remember, forgive me, but have you contacted your ASO (Aids Service Organization)?  They might be able to provide you with a list of the foodbanks and give you some other suggestions.  What does your significant other do?  Is he the one in the service?  Anyway, just hang in there.  I completely understand that that is easier said than done.  Just try your best.

Alex didn't come back last night.  I hope he's not going to be gone the whole day.  I gave him my extra set of keys when he started staying here (big mistake, I know).  I want them back-today.  Of course, things don't always go the way I want them to go.  But I feel as if I can't leave unless I get them back. I really don't think he would rip me off, but who knows.  I have a pretty big distrust for people I haven't seen in a long time.  So, in reality, it's my mistake for giving him the keys.  If worse comes to worse, I'll call the landlord and tell him he needs to change the locks.  I'm sure he'll charge me for that, but that's alright.  It might need to be done anyway, because the girl who lives in the front apartment told me awhile back she doesn't have a key for the outside door anymore; her ex apparently has it.  Anyway, back to the subject.  Tomorrow is the day he's supposed to be out, so hopefully I'll hear something from him today.  But if not, I'll handle it when I have to.  If I haven't heard anything from him by tomorrow, I'm going to call my landlord about changing the locks and I'll just keep his stuff here until I hear from him.  I'm not going to put it outside or give it away or anything; I'm not heartless.  I hate not knowing what's going on.  That's part of my power-tripping I suppose, thinking I have to be in control every minute. 

I'm going to clean today; other than that, nothing else planned.  I hope you ladies have a good morning.  I'll be back later.

Good Morning Everyone! Well, this is my last week of summer school....YAY! :) I just look forward to sleeping in. I have been staying at my dad's house since Wednesday when my sister got back from Mexico and I look forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight. My girl Vivian is probably happy that we will have our normal routine again. Both of my parents are still out of town. My sister is leaving this afternoon to see my mom in Texas. It is her first trip so we will see how it goes. My mom has been engaged for a little over a year and the man lives in TX. I am curious about what her experience will be. He lives in a small town and my sister is not used to the "quite" life without much to do. We shall see...

Other than that not much happening, which is nice. I am waitiing for my period to come though....if it doesn't happen tomorrow I am officialy worried..... :-\ I've still been involved with the ex and we continue to not be responsible. I have never wanted my time of the month to happen so badly...will keep you posted. UGHHH...just saying it makes me nervous...

Hope you all have a great day!  :)

Good am ladies....

Thanks for all the nice comments about my pics...i love this little fone thingy....

My 4th was well hmmm how can i explain it.....SHITTYY???...yes that does it. The bf n his son and i went to Ft. Dix to see Keyshia Cole and fireworks. The event was nice but the night ended  in me n yungin breaking up again. You see he says that it is still uncomfortable for his son to see us be affectionate...and i'm not talking about tonguing each other down or groping each others crouches....im just talkin bout some good old hugging, laughing ang playing around. I am a very affectionate woman. Especially when i think my man is looking extra scruptious and also holidays get me nostalgic. I didnt have my own children so it was like we were a mini family that day..in my mind. He barely even talked to me. I mean his son gave me more attention than he did even if he is slightly rude and disrespectful for a 5 yr old. We still played around and ran around the park. But the dad was on some other mess all distant and shit and i got so mad that I was holding back my tongue that by the ride home i was cussing his behind out w/o cuss words. I mean maybe i was being selfish cus his son has said that he wants him and mommy back together but like i explained to bf, its been a year not 2 months 1. 2. if you show him that it is ok to like me and love me by showing some sort of affection instead of ignorig me like im some random chic, then he will get use to us. I had to ask is it him thats really uncomfortable or is it you...worried what he is going to go back and say to his mother...He just kept saying my son comes first, my son comes first...no shit moron...im not trying to get u to save me from drowning before your son. I am asking to be acknowledged, to be made felt wanted, desired...like one of them "i'm gon tear u up when we get home" looks. Not..he said he couldnt spend the night that night cus of the son. Now mind u he has spent the night before. But his argument for that was he never stayed when it was just us 3. Am i being totally unreasonable??...Maybe a little but not some much for this stage in the game. I mean he has just started getting his son regularly but by now im used to him being all over me and him up and changing like that gets me scared that he isnt feeling me any more. I dont know. I know i can be selfish but it wasnt selfishness when it was happening all the time. I am so upset. >:(

Anywho...
Wini: i hope u feel better sweety...
Betty: u know whats best for u and u and urs come first.
Queen: I never had pork roll on the grill...sounds good tho...with some spicy mustard..mmmm.
Keeping..i hit u up on myspace...hows married life....seems i may never get there after all... :(

Happy almost bday Cristy...your a Cancer lady huh...just like baby momma..are u crazy too?..J/K...i hope u have a wonderful day when it gets here....

To everyone I love u guys...i know i dont post that much but im here.....
Live life to the fullest...

Afternoon ladies,

Viv, wow.  One more week.  Yeeha.  Now, what are you going to do if you're pregnant?  Did you want to get pregnant?  I take it from reading your post you don't.  I hope you get your period; then, use some protection so this doesn't keep happening, kay? (not preaching, just trying to look out for you; and I know how that feels, to worry about being pregnant when you don't want to be).

Wishful, I don't think you're being selfish.  If the yungin' was affectionate before, now he's not because of his son, his son will never get used to seeing you two together.  And if his son thinks he's controlling his dad, he'll keep doing it.  I hope things work out.

Tendai, so good to hear from you!  I hope you're doing alright; well, as good as can be expected, aye.

Mahalia, good to hear from you.  Check in with us more often.  What is aluvia?  I'm not familiar with that med.

I got my apartment cleaned and took a shower/deep conditioned my hair.  It's been extremely dry lately (my hair).  I guess it's my hormones changing again.  Oh well.  Sometime today I have to go to the store to get some fruit.  Alex still hasn't made it back.  If he's not back by this evening, I'm going to call my landlord about changing the locks and what to do with his stuff.  That sounds icey doesn't it.  I'm really not a vindictive person, and I don't wish Alex any harm at all.  Hopefully the landlord won't mind his stuff being here until he can come get it.  Anyway, none of this may happen.  I'm just thinking ahead and out loud.  OK ladies, have a good afternoon.

Edited to correct a name.

Hi ladies, well today has been kind of a lazy day for me.

Wishful--seems like your man isnt ready, not his son. He seems to have the issues. A lil about myself, I too have children with somebody else. My kids father is engaged and I have a man. My children adjusted very well and I think its because both myself and their father behaved as if what was going on was a normal part of life. They have two families, and step-parents that love them. Now before things got very serious I stressed to my children that I knew it was hard to see other people in my life and they're allowed those emotions, but they need to respect my man because he is an adult...Seems to me your man isnt ready to get into that with his son. anyway, Im sorry u had a shitty 4th, i hope things get better 4 you.

Betty--Im making some calls today. Im gathering info about what services are out there to assist me. My man has a job, he's not active duty so he doesnt get much from the military. But we're still struggling, I guess it has to do alot with the economy, rising prices. The prices rise but our incomes dont.

vivyt- enjoy your down time!!

as for me Im going back to making phone calls and such. ... enjoy your day ladies

                                                                               Hello ladies. LOL with Wishful. No, I'm not crazy, most of the time. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Nothing planned but I will be going to Walmart. Maybe I can buy myself something cute.  Sorry your 4th of July sucked so bad.                                                      Betty, hope Alex returns your keys TODAY!!!!!!!!.    I am not very trusting either. Most people suck and not in a good way.  I say this because I have learned it the hard way.                                           Vivyt , hope your period comes soon.  It's not pleasant waiting and worrying. For future reference, the depo shot is very reliable. I could never remember to take pills but the depo is every 3 months.  Hope you have a great day.                                                                      Anyway, not much going on here. got my work clothes washed for the week and changed the sheets on our beds. My mom got Robert some Thomas the Tank Engine sheets and he loves them. His quilt also has trains, cars and boats on it. If it moves he loves it unless it is really loud, then it scares him. We have several cars that he won't ride in or just hasn't been forced to. I won't make him unless it's an emergency, then he will ride in whatever I have keys for.    I have been talking to my friend in SC. We click well and hopefully he can come back soon.  Time for coffee. Hope everyone has a great day. TTYL.  Cristy

hi ladies,

my flu is gone and feeling ok again.


Cristy - Happy Birthday hope it will be a great one!

Win- I hope you feel better soon! Maybe you should see a doctor. It makes me nervous your being ill with low T cells. Its great that Billy is taking care of you.

Veritee - that was a sweet post... I got a busy, happy vibe from ya. Maybe you should dispense those brochures in ob/gyn clinics as well?

Wishful - nice pics! about your BF, I wouldnt sweat it. sounds like he is being sensitive and worried about his son, I wouldnt take it personal. You know maybe you should reread your post, and see what is facts (him not wanting to touch etc) and what is your interpretation of them (he doesnt love me etc). I think youre causing yourself excessive pain by interpreting things that you dont know for sure. I think you should let it go and take the good things that your BF can offer you, no one's perfect. im not saying I dont udnerstand your side and why you felt let down and rejected, I probabaly would too - I get anxious when my BF doesnt call me for example - but then I seperate the negative voices in my head and what they are telling me about the situation (he doesnt give a shit about you, you always love more, etc) and I break it down into facts and feelings. I see then that my feelings are not logically connected to facts, although they are logical for me cos I experienced a lot of insecurity in life. so, I hope you guys make up. and beleive you CAN be a happy little unit just maybe not so smoothly and in the ideal pace.
Excuse the Dr Phil, I just hate to see people break up unnecessarily...

Betty, i hope Alex moves out in a dignified way. Its good you have a plan B. You might want to have a friend there, I do hope he's safe! That personal hygeine stuff is what kind of puts me on alert. I know youre a big girl, strong woman, but just looking out for you. About the Arabic food, that's standard fare where I'm from, you can get it in any supermarket as well. For me it is like McDonalds... sounds like a nice date with Liz planned.

Queen good luck with the car & house, good to take care of these things in the summer.

Viv, I hope youre not pregnant. If youre late, you can already take a home pregnancy test.

Cindy - what a wonderful rock Ice is proving to be, that man is worth his weight in gold. I miss your regular posts.

Hugs to everyone - Tendai, Keeping, Jshort, Netta, Mahalia, Latifah, Mom and anyone I may have missed. Hope you had a wonderful 4th (to those whom it applies). It's 21.00 so I am going to have dinner. Catch up again later

I knew I forgot someone: Snow, good luck with the scraping. I missed the reason, did a popcorn bag expload or something?

I want to start off sending great big GET WELL smoochies acrossed the country to my sweetie Winn.  Let us know how you are doing. 

Betty, Mini isn't on anything for her diabetes.  Well, she is, i guess, sort of ::).  She takes fiber and fishoil to keep her triglycerides down.  The rest we are controlling with her diet.  She's off all sugar - she's a walking Splenda ad.  Her numbers just aren't getting down to anywhere near normal.  She'll have her fasting panel and see her Lipid Doc again in Sept.  If her numbers aren't any better, we may have to start discussing putting her on meds for it.  The only drawback is that the meds can mess up her liver and she's had crazy liver numbers before (but they've been normal for a while).  So, if her cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and tris are still whacky, we're just going to have to figure something else out.

Snow: I feel for you, hun.  Scraping popcorn ceilings can't be easy.  Are you going to paint them after?  Our ceilings are need painting, but they're just going to have to wait. 

Hubby is outside right now sweating to death, and finishing our walkway.  It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Wed. so we want to stay-crete it before it does.  I got all the laundry done and hung out to dry, got my hair cut, and did the grocery shopping.  Now, I need a nap.  I got another bottle of color - I can see my gray roots ashining. 

That's all for today.  My aunt is bringing over the honey this evening.  I really hope it works.  I had some cooked ground meat in the fridge, so I'm making sloppy joe's and onion rings for supper.  It's quick, easy, and won't heat the house.

Love to you all! (and extra for Win)

Hey ladies,

Jshort, good luck with your calling.  I hope you find some help.  It's out there, sometimes we just have to search.

Cristy, tell us more about your friend from South Carolina.  What does he look like?  Is he poz also?  What's his personality like?

Drag, I'm glad you're feeling better. 

Mum, let us know how the honey works out.  I eat honey sometimes, especially when I make cornbread.  My mum used to have me put that on my cornbread when I was a kid so I would eat it, and it's stuck.  I know there's sugar in it; but I take insulin and pills for my diabetes, so I can kind of tweek the insulin if need be. ;)

Well, Alex and Joe got here about an hour ago and Alex moved his stuff out and gave me my keys.  So, worry for nothing.  We all talked for a little bit after he got his stuff in Joe's car and he thanked me and hugged me when he left.  Joe said they'd come by from time to time to visit and also told me to call whenever I wanted to.  So, that's that.

I need to go to the store to get some fruit, but I'm thinking I'll do that tomorrow.  I made a cake and I'm going to frost it in a few minutes.  Have a good evening ladies.

Hey everyone!

Betty-I'm glad everything went well with Alex. It doesn't sound like there are any hard feelings which is good.
Mum- You stay soooo busy! I get tired just hearing about all you do...you go girl!
Wish- Sorry about your 4th. Sometimes holidays are actually more trouble than they are worth.

Well today I got to school and they told us there was no water. Um, Hello? If the kids wanted to use the bathroom they could but then we had to call the custodian who would come with a bucket of water to "flush" the toilet. The same goes for all the adults. I just think that is RIDICULOUS! I mentioned that I thought they were not legally allowed to operate school without running water but I was told the district was sending a water truck. I have no idea what that means but whatever. All I know is that I had to pee soooooo badly and was not about to use the restroom and then call the custodian to flush it. I got out of there so fast and hurried home before my bladder exploded. Hopefully it will all be fixed tomorrow. Crazy!

On another note....I am kind of embarrassed about mentioning my worry about my period. I have not been able to think about anything else and I just had to mention it. We DEFINITELY should know better than this but I do have to say that after all that has happened between us I feel like what else could happen? Anyways...I have calculated and calculated and I have a range of days. I took a test already and it came out negative but technically I won't be "late" until Wednesday. What makes me worried is that I don't feel like I normally do when I am about to start and I worry that if I am the Atripla will do something but I still have to wait and I can't stop taking my meds. UGHHH...Ok, enough. Thanks for listening me ramble on and on. I guess I will just have to wait and see....it's killing me....

Have a good night ladies!

Hey Everyone--

Still working on my hair and getting frustrated with this damn car. It seems to be one thing after another and I am pouring more money into it than I expected so if this last repair doesn't cost much then I will pay for it, if not then fuck it. I think my other roomie is talking about getting a car anyway. I still haven't heard anything about the house which is pissing me off now. Because I feel if we didn't get it, they could at least call and tell us so. Good news is that my section 8 was accepted and I have to go to orientation on Friday. It was good to get good news since today is my Dad's bday and I was getting a little bummed. But most auspicious to get it today of all days.

I did glance in Sunday's paper looking but disappointed because most places are in areas I don't want to live in or they don't want pets. And I am not willing to give up my cats. But I know they usually post a sign of available places during the orientation so maybe I will find something soon. But still bummed about the house. I also put in an inquiry about the missing money order from May. Got a letter from my son today, he is stressing and wants me to see him. So, I will try to go tomorrow since I can drive the car. I wrote him a letter and sent him a card to try to cheer him up. Gonna start packing things up around Wednesday and move them to my one roomie's friends house which is where we are suppose to be going for the time being. Now I feel things are kind of in limbo but I am working on it the best I can.

Other than that, it's still hot as hell so I have been staying out of the livingroom where the computer is. I have been reading what you all have been saying and glad all is well for the most part. Sorry about the breakup, Wishful. Betty, I know you are glad Alex is gone and things are still cool. Viv, you preggers? Ooooooh. Glad to see Tendai is doing ok, I have been worried about her. I really need to do another blog soon. I see they have dropped a few bloggers and added a few. I have to start being prolific again but I have been so busy trying to do things around here...*sighs*... Have a good night....

Good morning, my sweeties!  Getting up to 86 today and muggy hot >:(  But, the walkway is FINISHED!!  It looks so nice.  Now we just need it to rain (60% chance tomorrow) so the stay-crete will set the pebbles.  One more project I can check off the list.  Today, we're putting up the new light in the girls' room and the hallway and working on the school room (again).  Tomorrow is little bits ENT visit.  We're leaving at 6:30am, her appt. is at 8:15am.  I'll be sure to let you all know what happens.

Oh, and we got some great news.  Gabriel Brothers store is finally reopening Thursday and they've added 7000sq ft. of shopping area.  Last summer, they tore the whole store down to the ground and rebuilt it from the ground up.  So, you know where I'll be on Thursday :P

Queen, I hope you find a new place to live soon.  It must be really frusterating.

Betty: I'll let you know if the honey works.  The key is to find fresh honey produced with-in a 20 mile radius of your home.  That way, the bees make it from flowers that you would be exposed to and that's how you get the immunity from the pollen. 

Viv: That's just plain nasty!  I wouldn't think that the school could be open without running water.  How are the kids supposed to wash their hands?  Or get a drink?  And who wants to wait for a bucket of water to flush the toilet?

It's brekkie time and the natives are getting restless.  I'll catch up with everyone later.  Oh, and Hubby has yet to notice that I got my hair cut :-\  I'm not going to tell him, either.  I'm just waiting for someone to mention it in front of him.

Love to my honies!

Morning ladies,

Viv, no workable water?!  I wouldn't like that either.  Don't be embarrased that you told us about being worried about your period.  That's what we're here for.

Queen, do you know anyone who's a mechanic who would maybe work on your car for free as long as you bought the part?  Good luck finding another place.  It can be frustrating, I know.  I'm so glad your section 8 is coming through!

Mahalia, I didn't know you were in Africa.  There's another lady on here who lives in Zimbabwe (Tendai).  Do you have as much trouble where you're at as the people in Zimbabwe are having?

Liz called me last night to tell me that she had a "breathing attack."  Awhile back, she was diagnosed with COPD; she quit smoking using the patch.  But, she hadn't been using her inhaler or running her air (and it's been extremely humid here).  She went to her doctor, who gave her a breathing treatment and put her on steroids.  I chewed her out (a little) for not using her inhaler nor running her air.  She was feeling a bit better when I talked to her.  I told her to call me when she was up and I would go see her.  

Other than going to see Liz, all I have to do is go to the store to get some fruit.  Since I cleaned yesterday I don't have that to do today.  I'll probably catch up on some reading later.  I also want to run my broom around the walls to take down some dust bunnies.  One of these days I'm going to clean out my main closet; but not today.  I'll be back later.  Have a good morning ladies.

Mum, I tried to post when you were posting.  I'm glad the walkway is done.  I'd love to see a picture of it.  And what's Gabriel Brothers?

Betty, Gabriel Brothers (we call it Gabe's) is a really, REALLY cheap store.  They buy all the over-stock or imperfect clothes, shoes, furniture, baby stuff, housewares, ect, from other companies and sell it dirt cheap.  I got Carter brand fotted-fleece sleepers for one of the kids for 10-cents each.  They were brand new!  The only "problem" was that the zipper didn't match the PJ's.  For example, one of the navy blue sleepers had a pink zipper.  What do I care, all he was going to do was sleep in it.  I also got the girls Old Navy dresses for 99-cents /ea.  The "problem" was that they were mis-sized.  So what!  I just held it up to them - took what, an extra 15 seconds?  Everything they sell is new.  You do have to watch and make sure that there are no holes, or missing buttons, or no zipper, that sort of thing.  But, if there are, then they put a sticker showing the problem.  But, if all I have to do is replace a button, or buy a pair of shoe laces, then no big deal.

Think of a place bigger than Sam's Club, with the variety of stuff like Wal-mart (minus the food), brand name mall merchandise, and Goodwill prices. Voila!  Gabriel Brothers.

Ok, someone needs to start a new thread. My day has not been too good. I have giving up getting the car fixed. Betty, my roomie has been working on the car for free but now all of a sudden the damn windshield is cracked and someone took the horn out the car when it was at my bf's mother's house. Not surprising because they had done stuff to it because she would not give them the car. I told her about the windshield and I told her if it cost too much that I am not getting it fixed. I have poured enough into that car and she has to pay me back for it. She is trying to get a car allowance from the welfare office but I don't think she is going to get it because they have changed that program up quite a bit. They are the ones who helped me get my Caprice but after the accident when I tried to get another allowance and was told you have to get a job first in order to get the allowance. And the only income she gets is child support, her bf pays all the other bills and I don't see him paying for the car to be fixed. The only way I will do it is if she gives me the car.

The landlord here has not come to get his rent money so I am assuming he is giving us 30 days. I did get approved for section 8 finally. The lady from the realtor keeps giving us the same song and dance that they had not finished out applications yet and she has other applications to go through. But she has not denied us, not sure if I call and mention the section 8 if that will make a difference. My other roomie has a friend who owns a 3 bedroom apartment for rent, he has been trying to call her but no answer yet.

I still have not finished my braids yet and my shoulder hurts like hell. My roomie's ex got out of jail on Monday but we have a hearing tomorrow for him violating the PFA, I hope they lock him back up. He is still playing games like changing my roomie's passwords to things and wiping out his profile on certain gay sites. I guess little things that can't prove it's him. But we still have the emails he sent along with the messages on my voicemail.

We just had a major pour down of rain about 30 minutes ago which has left me feeling very tired. I may not even mess with my hair today how I am feeling. Hope you all are having a better day than I am..*sheesh*
